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!
