So with Mother's Day this Sunday I really really wanted to write this post. With this being my first Mother's Day as a mommy it has made me appreciate my mommy that much more. My mom is my best friend. I understand now how she always put my brother and me first and the hard work it is to be a mom.
She was there through the awful and awkward Middle school days, the fights with friends, and the heart breaks with boys. Every dance competition, recital, picture day, and trip. She went on my Senior Chorale trip to Ohio after weeks of begging. She helped plan my wedding, and was there through my tough pregnancy.
She managed to be a wonderful mother, work full time, have a successful marriage and be a great friend to many. And now add a loving grandmother. With everything in the last few years she has been able to remain strong and beautiful. I look up to her in so many ways. She is my hero. I hope that I can be half the mom that she is and I pray to have the relationship that her and I have with Belle.
Not only will I celebrate my first Mother's Day but I will celebrate and honor my mom in a completely new light.
Happy Mother's Day Mom!!!
