What Being a Mom Means to Me + Garth Brooks Giveaway #GarthLovesMom

I became a mom at a young age. Eighteen years old to be exact. From the first moment I looked into my oldest son’s eyes, I knew there was nothing else I had ever wanted to be more. Although getting married and having children at such a young age has had its struggles, I am thankful for my ability to have the roll as a mom to four of the most beautiful boys in this world. Of course, I can only aspire to be as good a mom as my mother and some days I feel like an utter failure, but I suppose that’s what this mom gig is all about.

A few years ago, I didn’t like how things were going in our family life. The boys were off at school most of the day and I felt like I had very little involvement in what type of people they were becoming. We had no time together, and I vowed to change that. I started homeschooling them and we began going on adventures together. From our 70 day road trip to everyday adventures in our hometown, I cannot thank God enough for blessing me enough to be able to spend this time with my boys.

Oh, and we have had our adventures, and our ups and downs. Being the mom to a child with ODD has had its challenges. When he came to be and said he didn’t want to be on medication anymore, I have done everything in my power to make sure he doesn’t have to. This means a lot more work and heartache on my part, but it is worth it for him.

That to me is being a mom. Giving selflessly and unconditionally of yourself for your children. My own mom pictured above did the same. She stayed in a marriage that she probably should have left long before, because she thought that it was best for me and my siblings. She is the one who saved me from an abusive marriage with some tough love. She is the brightest star in my world each day, and I can only hope to be the same for my children when they are older.

  1. What a wonderful song! Everything I ever learned about being a mom, I learned from my mom. I'm going to send this to her.

  2. This is great! I love this. I also love Garth. Old School Garth though, I haven't heard anything new yet! – Jeanine

  3. It's so nice to finally "meet" your Mom. Tell her I said hello the next time you chat. You are a great Mom and I loved spending time with you and the boys this fall.

  4. I will definitely be checking this out! I love Garth Brooks. His music has always moved me!

  5. Garth Brooks has been one of my favorite country artists for a while now. He has such amazing talent.

  6. A mom is unselfish by nature when it comes to our babies (even when they're grown). And a big hurrah for it. We grow so much by helping our little ones grow up into responsible loving young people. 🙂 I love the tribute here to your mom. She is a very lovely lady.

  7. It's a big deal and a huge blessing to be a mom. I have always believed that babies wait in baby heaven to be born, so this song perfectly captures that thought for me.

  8. What a beautiful mom you have. I feel so happy and blessed to be a mom. Can't wait to hear the whole song.

  9. Garth Brooks has a huge impact on my life. I was a teen in highschool when his first album came out and his music carried with me all through life. When I went to college in Stillwater, OK where he had lived, it carried me even further. It was interesting to see people flock to the home he shared with Sandy and the place he sang at or worked at. I'm excited that he is touring and making music again.
