Queen Bees: Anonymous

Hi y'all! And welcome to our FOURTH Queen Bee's link-up! I seriously can't believe it's been four months. I have loved reading about the women that you admire and Shelly and I hope that this continues to grow and grow! In a world filled with "mom wars" and the like, we really want this to be a space that we focus on building each other up instead of battling to do the opposite!

Thanks so much for coming back each month and sharing all your stories! The link-up will be open all month, so stop back by anytime in October! And, if you have an old post you've written, feel free to use that too!


This month is going to look a bit different for me. My post needs to remain anonymous but she will know that I'm talking about her.

This mom job is hard y'all. And when you add a job job on top, it can get hectic. And when you add a job that sends you on an extended assignment (think months) without seeing your husband and kiddos, well.... that takes a special woman to handle.

So today, I salute, Anonymous Momma.

I pray for you.
I admire you.
I thank you.
I am proud of you.

You are passionate.
You are determined.
You are hard working.
You are loved.
You are seen.
You are missed.
You are supported.

There is no one in the world other than you that will know exactly what I mean by this.

Without going into too much detail, I am so thankful that all those years ago I saw a picture of you and knew that you would fit into my family. Well, complete it actually because it was just you and me. I claimed you from day one and I am so glad I did. We have done so many fun and crazy things together (and survived). We have been equal part bad/good influence on each other and I couldn't imagine it any other way. Whether studying or road tripping it was never boring and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

You taught me so much when it was me supposed to be teaching you (and I'm not just talking about how to drink Jack Daniels). ;)  You stood by me on so many important moments in my life and I want you to know that I am standing by you. My prayers are filled with you and that sweet family of yours and I am always nothing more than a phone call away.

May this time away be quick.
May you know how loved you are.
May you grow in your dependance on Him.

I don't think there are enough words for me to use to describe just how in awe of you I am but know that I could type all day and never do you justice. Just know this.

I'll be your candle on the water. Today, Tomorrow, Always.

Love you!!

(And because I really want to make you smile...)
