Proud Daughter Post :)

This week has been a BIG week for my mama and I’m just so proud!!

I have an amazing mama! She would never brag on herself, so good thing she has me 😉  Anyone who knows her speaks of her strength. It’s one of her most noticeable and admirable qualities. Her strength comes from deep within her soul, which rests in the Lord and she is just the kind of person you want and NEED on your side.

I have seen my sweet mama demonstrate incredible strength in just about every kind of situation possible and I really don’t get it – how someone can be so gracious, loving, helpful, no-nonsense, compassionate, intelligent, and STRONG even when things are not the best. Jesus is so mighty in her and it’s something to behold!

My whole life I’ve watched her work a full time job and a part time job. All while – getting her Masters, serving on just about every community board in Rock Hill at some point, serving at church, going on every field trip, being at every class party, concert, ball game and event and loving my Daddy and Clay and I so fiercely. You see what I mean!? She’s quite the lady.

And this week- after humbly serving in different roles in HR for the past 20 years, she was named Vice President of Human Resources at Comporium!!! Proud is an understatement. I’ve watched her whole career prepare her for this moment and it’s just so amazing to see her earn something so incredibly well deserved. I feel so blessed to have watched my mama demonstrate beautifully that you can have both a healthy family and a healthy career and days like today make me extra proud to be hers! Congrats, mama! I love you!
