Happy Mother’s Day
We made it to Friday.
I feel like I haven’t sat still for more than 10 minutes all week, so I’m really looking forward to the weekend.
Yeah, yeah, neighbors. I hear you. I’ll mow the lawn in the morning. Sheesh.
But after that, I’m relaxing with my boy and celebrating Mother’s Day. I’m really looking forward to Sunday.
Speaking of which, I miss my Momma. I haven’t seen her since Christmas, and I won’t until July.
She and I have a very special relationship. It was just us two my whole life.
She looked out for me, and I looked out for her.
Oh, we had our moments. At times, we fought more like sisters than mother and daughter. But we’ve always recovered.
The other day, a co-worker asked me where I got my sense of humor.
“I don’t know,” I said. I had never really thought about that.
“Is your mom funny?” she asked.
Oh, absolutely. I got it from her.
Wonder where my willpower and drive come from? They’re from her, too.
Every good quality I have came from her.
Quite honestly, I don’t think there’s much my mom can’t do. She seemed to make the impossible possible my whole life.
She taught me that there’s not one thing you can’t accomplish in this world as long as you’re willing to put in the effort.
She taught me that there’s no time to sit around and feel sorry for yourself. The world owes you nothing.
And she taught me that love really can get you through just about anything.
The birth of my son brought Momma and me closer than we’ve probably ever been, a relationship I’ve always dreamed of.
So in giving me one child, God gave me two of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received.
Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and all moms.
See you Monday.
