My mom is patient and loving. She is always there when I need to talk or need advice. She is never far away if I need a babysitter or a lunch date.
Growing up she taught me so much, from what it meant to be a good person to art and craft techniques. I knew I could always talk to her if something was bothering me and I still use her as a sounding board today. I could not have asked for a better mom or friend to walk with me through the stages of my life.
She laid with me on the sofa when my heart was broken and encouraged me to follow my dreams when I was facing a crossroads. I would not be the person I am, nor be where I am today if it were not for the amazing love and support of my mom.
Today is my mom's birthday and I am blessed to get to spend most of the day with her. I am so grateful to have been blessed with such an amazing mom. I'm grateful for all she has taught me and all I continue to learn from her as I grow as a mom. I'm grateful for the amazing relationship I have with my mom where I can honestly say she is one of my best friends. I'm grateful to spend so much time with my mom. I'm grateful for all the rough times she helped me through and all the times she encouraged me to go after my dreams. I'm so grateful to have such an amazing woman to call mom and if I turn out to be half the woman and mom that she is, I will be proud.
What are your favorite childhood memories? What qualities and lessons do you cherish? Who helped you to become the person you are today?
May today remind us of all the lessons that got us to where we are today. May we give gratitude to the everyday heroes that bless our lives. Have a beautiful day!
