Honoring Mothers

Apr 24, 2023

Mom’s the taxi drivers, grocery getters, laundry doers, planners, event organizers, booboo kissers, cookers, cleaners and so much more. They give unselfishly and love unconditionally!

  • 💕A fond memory of my mother is we hardly listened to the radio in the car, she would often sing instead (mostly hymns). Another memory that stands out is I remember my mother and I were driving home one day, and on the side of the road was a dead animal and buzzards were eating it, I thought it was gross and disgusting, but my mother started joyfully laughing and said “Jesus has thought of everything, even the buzzards to clean the dead carcasses off the road!” it definitely gave me a new perspective of how to look at things. ~Larena
  • 💕My mom loved to just Go! She would tell us to hop in the car and next thing you know we were on a plane flying to Colorado! ~Melissa
  • 💕I remember one time my mother cleaning up a skinned knee and, in that moment, just knowing how loved I was that she was taking care of me. ~Sarah
  • 💕My mom used to let me take off from school so we could spend the day together. She also took me everywhere with her and if I wasn’t allowed, she wasn’t going! ~Teresa
  • 💕My mother would call people “baby”, and somehow, she could make it have a different meaning for different people, she would refer to my dad and it would be out of love, for us kids it would show affection, to a stranger it would me her southern bell style of showing care & kindness. ~Darlene
  • 💕My mom was a great multitasker, she would comb my hair to get me ready for school, while she was doing her “business” on the toilet!..lol ~Dee
  • 💕One thing my mother taught me was how to cook. ~Kristy

  • 2 Tbsps. sesame oil
  • 4 cups cooked and cooled white rice
  • 1 onion diced

  • 1 8 oz bag frozen peas and carrots, thawed
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced

  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


  1. Heat a flat top griddle or large skillet to medium high heat for at least 5 minutes.

  3. Add the peas and carrots to the rice mixture and cook 1 minute.

  5. Move the rice to the side of the griddle or skillet and add the remaining sesame oil to the open skillet area and then add the shrimp, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Cook 3 minutes or until the shrimp just turn pink.
