Do you ever have days where you just want your mom? I've had a lot of those lately, but fortunately I spent all last weekend being pampered at my parents. Growing up I never appreciated the rockstars that my parents are. Dad-- I promise at some point you will get a lovey dovey post, but on this one my heart goes out to mom. -- My mother is an amazing woman. She has endured things that I can't imagine but has the most positive attitude of anyone I've ever met. She is giving, graceful, and kind. When I was younger everyone told me how grateful I should be to have such a wonderful mother, but in my mind I would chuckle and think "My mom? She's just my mom." Now as I've had sometime to reflect about my childhood I realize that not all moms are as wonderful as she is. Not all are as selfless and would sacrifice anything for their child, but my mom would...will, DOES! She is an angel to me, and helps me through all the changes that continue on in life. My mother is my best friend. Although she may not think so sometimes, I think she is the coolest. Yep, mom I bet you never thought that would come out of my mouth. I honor you, I respect you and I aspire to be like the woman you are. Never let your light be dimmed, you are an example to all that know you, and I will love you forever. Thank you for raising me right! I'll forever be in your debt for that!
