I was asked to write a short paragraph about my mama for Motherâ€™s Day on SGNScoops. Â A paragraph will not be enough to describe my mother.Â She is a woman bigger than life packaged in a 5â€™3 frame.Â A woman with a lot of words and a lot of love.Â She is the type of woman that movies such as “Steel Magnolias” and “Gone with the Wind” were written about.
My father drove race cars when I was a little girl and because of this people may think that I get my sense of adventure from him, but anyone that knows my mother knows that I really get it from her.Â When I was a little girl she and my aunt would pile all us kids in the car and take us wherever they went.Â She is really a woman ahead of her time.Â She never backs down from a fight, whether it be taking in a distant relative and standing nose to nose with that relative’s very large, very mean stepfather, to fighting for the lives of our loved ones suffering illnesses such as cancer and liver disease.
She always had a way of making the mundane special and she has taught me that laughter really is the best medicine and strength in a woman is a very beautiful virtue.
Happy Motherâ€™s Day Sue Brantley.Â I love you and you have always set the example of what it means to be The Queen.
