Cousin Mars Presents: A Mother’s Day (month) Special

Steve + Sheona have been married for 15 years and counting!

Steve + Sheona have been married for 15 years and counting!

In honor of all of the wonderful mothers that follow Triple B, I want to allow husbands to show their appreciation for these women. This month, Marriage Matters Mondays will be replaced with a Cousin Mars special series: I Love My Wife Even More, Because of the Mother She Is. Our first husband to participate, Steve (currently residing in PA) has been married for 15 years. I’m sure you’ll enjoy what he shared below.

This topic is very sensitive to me because I believe being a Mother is the most difficult job in the World. My wife, Sheona, does a fantastic job in being a Mother to not only our children, but also some of the middle and high school basketball players that I’ve coached throughout the years. We have three children, Tyrece (17), Tiara (15) and Tamel (13), who are all different and needy, but Sheona still manages to find a way to give each of them her undivided attention.

Tyrece is a high school sophomore and is very independent and responsible. Sheona did a great job in teaching him how to do keep his belongings organized and how to take care of them. She believes it’s important to value your belongings and not let others disrespect what’s yours. She also instilled a “Family 1st” attitude in him and because of that, he’s a person that others can count on in times of need.

Tiara is the free spirit child who learned from her mom to LOVE yourself and be who you are. She did a great job in teaching Tiara that everyone is not the same and being different and comfortable with yourself is okay. Because of that, Tiara has become a wonderful person and friend to those who are worthy of a true friendship. With Tiara being the only other female in the house, sometimes Sheona has to be firm and stern in the advice she is giving Tiara but in the long run, Tiara will appreciate it in a big way.

Tamel is the youngest and most people forget about him. He was taught to not believe everything he hears and to research so he can make his own evaluation. This has stuck with him for years and because of it, his knowledge level has increased ten fold.  Sheona taught Tamel to dream big and go after those dreams hard. She’s also taught him to be better than his parents and not to be afraid to take risks.

I’m very passionate about my children so the type of Mother that Sheona is makes me love her more and more. After 15 years of marriage, I’m looking forward for the next 15 years to be even more special.

      This is a beautifully awesome post on so many levels. A man elevated enough to recognize and express his appreciation for the woman he chose to procreate with is not as common as it should be. Respect, my brother! What a blessing.

    2. Great post. What a wonderful way to acknowledge and honor your wife!

    3. I love this article. A man appreciating his woman in this way is a beautiful thing. Thank you Black Bridal Bliss for continuing to show positive couples that I can relate with.

    4. This was a great read. Had I known, I would have participated in this series. My wife has definitely made me a better person; which has also allowed me to be the best possible father.

      STEVE! I have so much love for this entire family. Having witnessed the entire evolution has been such a blessing. I’m thankful that Mr. Little ;-) agreed to contribute to Triple B once again, thankful that this post is resonating with so many of you, and especially thankful that Cousin Mars had the novel idea to add this important series to the Marriage Matters content in honor of Mother’s Day.

    7. Thanks everyone for your kind words. Thank you Black Bridal Bliss for allowing me to participate in this wonderful movement.

    8. I enjoyed reading about this mother…Motherhood is a skill not something that just happens…

      @Jackie – Motherhood is a skill not something that just happens… <-- Profound statement. One of the things I admire most about many mothers in my circle is their ability to identify and nurture the differences in their children and the best ways to fulfill the needs of their children (however varied they might be) while not making one child feel more isolated than the other. Sheona seems to do an excellent job of this!

      Another great essay Steve. I enjoyed reading it so much. Tell Sheona I said Happy Mother’s Day. May your wonderful family continue to be blessed. Love, Mrs. Bartlett
