My mom… How do I even write this post without tearing up? She has always been there for us, through thick and thin. And she is here for us now in such a way, that is getting us through day to day life.
Don’t get me wrong, we have had our moments. After all, I was a teenager once! Though shy, I was a fiercely independent, strong willed child. Which I’m sure made life easy for mom… ;).
Over the years out relationship has evolved and she has taught me so very much. All of my compassion comes from her. Her unique ability to know exactly how to help, is truly a gift. A small streak of stubbornness helps her navigate this world and deal with all of our strong personalities! Through her example we were taught how to stand up to the bullies and stand up for the underdog. How to help people in crisis and how to truly be there for someone. She taught us how to love and is teaching our sweet kids the same.
Mom, we are so fortunate, lucky, blessed, thankful (the list goes on and on) that you can be here with us for most of this rather un-fun journey. I promise, as soon as we get through this – we are going to all have LOTS more fun!! At the beach!!
I Love you Mom!!!
