Happy Mother's Day!
It has been a great day. I will post more about my own wonderful mother's day tomorrow.
But for today, I wanted to tell you about my mom. (And as a little bonus there's even a picture of me! ha. This is a four generation picture with me, my mom, my grandmother, and my daughters. I hope to take another this summer for my other girls.)
My mom is fabulous. My mom and I didn't always see eye to eye when I was young. That might even be a bit of an understatement. haha
But now that I am a mother, and with hindsight being 20/20, I know that she always had my best interests at heart. And that she did what she thought best to make sure that I turned out okay. And, really, all in all, I think she did a good job!
She grew up with such a different life than I had, and I think that everything that she did was to make sure that my brother and I had every advantage that she didn't have. I know that she would tell you that she spoiled me, and she probably did...but I also know that she pushed me and she challenged me and I love her for that.
I love that she is a person of strong ideals. She holds tightly to those she loves and she would go to the mat for any one of us.
I love too, that now that I am older, I can consider her my friend as well as my mother.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
