I am a big fan of this day because I am a big fan of my mom. I wanted to share a few words about who my mom is to me and why I am thankful for her.
My mom has always treated me like a treasure even when I have deserved to be treated like a criminal. She loved me when I threw applesauce on the ceiling. She loved me when I stole that Kit-Kat bar from the grocery store. She loved me when I drove her car off a cliff. She even loved me when I told her to “shut-up” …won’t do that again. She has always loved her children unconditionally and that I am thankful for.
I have a sister. She’s very competitive. My mom never loved her more than me or me more than her. She loves us both with the same heart and that I am thankful for.
She taught me how to swim. Not just in the pool but also with all the other fish that don’t always seem to like me. Because of my mom I know how to keep kicking and keep gasping for air even when life’s waves come rolling in.
(This might be where it all started… And yes, I still swim with my shirt on.)
My mom spoiled me (big time) BUT she taught me how to be thankful. She showed me that being thankful does not mean just saying, “thank you,” but instead being thankful is showing the genuineness of my heart. She showed me how to be thankful because she is thankful everyday and that I am thankful for.
I would have loved to show everyone a picture of my awesome mother but I know that she would freak-out over having her photo on the internet. So mom, I spared you that anxiety. Happy Mother’s Day.
