Now…. if you are wondering why Mama Giraffe is taking the time on Mama’s Day to write this post your thought is warranted. However, this post isn’t coming from the hoof of Mama Giraffe but rather the hooves of Baby and Papa Giraffe who believed there was no better time to invite ourselves as surprise guests to the blog (we hope you don’t mind Mama Giraffe but we know your passwords!).
Baby and Papa Giraffe are extremely blessed to have such a strong, courageous and caring Mama. We are so proud of our Mama Giraffe and the way she has stepped outside of her comfort zone to share her story and touch the lives of so many other Mama’s. We are encouraged daily by her faith in the Lord and how she is always seeking His will. Although we could go on and on praising our Mama Giraffe (did we mention we think she is the best?), Baby Giraffe thought it would come across as bragging and suggested we keep it between the three of us. What can I say she gets her modesty and humbleness from her Mama. Since we don’t know anything about being a Mama, Baby Giraffe had the brilliant idea to reach out to Mama Giraffe’s followers (the experts) and get their input on Mama Giraffe.
“You are a true fighter and have so much courage as a Mama. Baby Giraffe is the most adorable, stylish and fearless little princess, she’s your mini me for sure! I think God has taken your story and made it into a beautiful journey for your family! Baby Giraffe is so lucky to have you as a mom to look up to, to be encouraged by and to be loved on!” – Mama Horse
“Baby Giraffe’s demeanor is a true reflection of her Mamas love. Your perseverance in the midst of struggle has produced patience, understanding, and a grateful heart as a Mama. You are creative, dedicated and passionate about your convictions and an inspiration for other women and Mama’s.” – Mama Bear
“A beautiful aspect of who you are as a Mama, is shaping Baby Giraffe's identity as a child of God. Being a child of God means resembling the things of Him; holiness, purity, life-giving, and light. Baby Giraffe will grow up seeing the way you resemble these characteristics of Christ” – Mama Turkey
“Mama Giraffe models for Baby Giraffe the beauty of “human” kindness and true generosity through your interactions with others and selfless generosity to those in need.” – Mama Panda
“You have so many great qualities! You are selfless, patient, and compassionate beyond words. Your love and creativity overflows with your interaction with Baby Giraffe every day. I respect your calm, peaceful, nonjudgmental and understanding personality as Mama and friend!” - Mama Bunny
“Your care and thoughtFULLness has always been what stands out most about you, what I believe is your best characteristic. It leads to a selflessness, genuineness, and gracefulness that is unique to you, it's what people know as 'Mama Giraffe'. I can confidently say this is one of the greatest gifts you can give and is reflected in the way you are a Mam.a” – Mama Tiger
“I love to see you delight in Baby Giraffe. It is obvious from the fierce tenderness you show her that you see her as God has made her to be, and that gifted perspective enables you to be patient and firm and loving.” – Mama Frog
“I think most people that know Mama Giraffe, almost always associate her with the word kind. Above all, I believe that one of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the ability to be kind and to love unconditionally. Mama Giraffe seems to do that with ease. You can see that through Baby Giraffe's zest for life and her endless amount of smiles.. I know I consider myself amongst the lucky to call Mama Giraffe a friend and Baby Giraffe is one lucky little lady to call her Mama" – Mama Sheep
“Mama Giraffe’s never ending dedication, selflessness and love for Baby Giraffe is truly amazing. More than that, Baby Giraffe brings out the best aspects of you- you're creativity with cute little projects, you're positivity and enjoyment of all her milestones and accomplishments. It has been so amazing to watch you grow into such a beautiful Mama!” – Mama Hippo
“Mama Giraffe your commitment to be a learner and to grow and to know others all define the beautiful YOU, and in turn, will carry on to those two little watching eyes. What a gift. Baby Giraffe is SO crazy lucky to have you as her Mama- to have you to watch and to model and to know that she is deeply known. You are fun and silly, you embrace laughter and celebration. And you are intentional and wise, and embrace honesty and vulnerability. You are a warrior. And you are a gift.” - Mama Bunny
Baby and Papa Giraffe want to thank all of the Mama’s out there who not only took the time to encourage Mama Giraffe but who also are strong role models and advocates for her day in and day out. Additionally, it would be foolish of Baby and Papa Giraffe if we didn’t make a special shout out to Nana and GG Giraffe who have set the bar high when it comes to being a Mama. One of Mama Giraffe’s supporters said it perfectly when she said this “Nana and GG Giraffe have cultivated two generations that I have now gotten to see in both Mama Giraffe and Baby Giraffe as woman of God, faithful to walk in His ways no matter what challenges come. I have seen two generations of beauty (inside and out). I have seen in Mama Giraffe the same thoughtfulness and care that I have seen in Nana and GG Giraffe, shown each time I see them. Nana and GG Giraffe are blessing to those around them and more importantly have passed on a continued blessing of generations who resemble your care, joy, patience, endurance, love, peace, and faithfulness.”
Baby and Papa Giraffe want you all to keep this “Mama Giraffe” movement going. Encourage Mama Giraffe to finish her book, continue being transparent in the blogs and please share the website with everybody you know. Baby and Papa Giraffe are excited to see how God continues to use Mama Giraffe and her website to impact the lives others.
Finally, Baby Giraffe wants to thank Mama Giraffe for always staying true to herself and being the best Mama she could ask for. She wants to end by quoting the young and wise Kid President “thanks for believing in us, putting up with us, and straight up loving us!”
