Mother’s Day 2017 I wrote this article as a tribute to my mother, Barbara Hickcock Agnew. She passed away on June 21, 1993 and I still miss her to this day.
If you’re fortunate enough to have your mother still living today, then you are blessed. Now I do realize that not all mothers are created equally. Thank God for that because there are some women out there I swear should never have procreated.
I’m not saying that as a judgment by any means. I say it because there are those relationships where one’s own mother may have skipped out on a family, leaving a father single or an older child responsible to care for themselves and their siblings.
What makes a good mother?
Love, compassion, empathy, discipline, teaching children the ways of life. The most valuable lesson that I hope I’ve taught to my three children is to love God first.
I’ve always taught my children who Jesus Christ is and tried to show them what living a Christian life means.
Enjoy your time with your family or by yourself and have a Happy Mother’s Day.

Something I always wanted was a Keurig coffee maker. For three years I kept giving my family hints. “Hey did you see that commercial for the Keurig coffee maker? That sure would be great to have since most of you are out of the house now”.
Well two years ago while my husband and I were out and about we stopped at a garage sale. Low and behold, there it was an older Keurig for only $20.00. I couldn’t believe it. A little $20.00 bill for a machine that cost over $60.00. My husband jumped on it and we brought it home. Yes it still works.

I met both Cynthia and her husband Bill Delaney about three years ago while I was involved with a network marketing company. They were active and one of the top leaders in this company.
After talking with her she said something to me that made the ” lightbulb” flash inside my head. She said; “Alicia I’ve watched you struggle with network marketing, mlm and daily money issues for awhile now. Take the SMW 10 Day Challenge and ignite your destiny”!
At first I was apprehensive about it because my excuse to be honest had always been “my husband does not support me and holds me back”.
During this journey I have discovered it’s not him, it’s me. What have I been afraid of? I’ve been afraid of being uncomfortable, letting go of the life we know right now for a better one.
Well No More!
It stops today!
I have found a tribe of women that will encourage and help hold me accountable for making the necessary changes to gain the advantages and success I seek.
Yes I have written articles about mlm and gaining success, however if I am not practicing what I want to help others achieve then what good are my words?
To be an example, one must pay forward abundance, success and blessings to others.
The time is here and now!
I am a Self Made Women and I challenge you to ignite your destiny.
There are all different names for mothers, Mom, Mamma, Mother, Ma, Mum. What makes a mom so special? Is it the fact that she bring life into this world, then does her very best to guide, coach, educate, love and show forgiveness to her children?
Let’s not forget the other women whom are raising children, step mothers. Step Mothers are just as important as mothers. They love their step children just as if they had carried them for nine months and given birth.
Make your mom something special. Gifts from the heart and love are more special than store bought. Yea right! My kids are grown now. I want gifts from the store like the Kerig, jewlery, family photos and more!!
