I Love My Mom

After writing my previous post I had just settled in to read some blogs I enjoy when my mom called.  She's in Honolulu right now taking a bit of a holiday.  Talking with her made me appreciate everything she does for me.  Made me tear up actually.  She is a very special lady.

This is the woman who taught me to never settle for anything less than what I want.  To be strong and independent.  Who can build and fix things like no body's business.  Who sewed my graduation dress so I could have what I wanted.  Who loves my animals like they're hers.  In short, she's an amazing creature who is ALWAYS in my corner.  

She challenges me to be a better person on a regular basis.  Over time we've developed a friendship in addition to a parental relationship.  Absence really does make the heart grow fonder because on a normal day her telling me all her daily details eventually annoys me.  But today I missed that.  I had a fabulous day and I wanted to share that with her.  So when she called it really hit me in the heart just how much she means to me.  How much she does for me.  

I love my mom!
