Today is my Mother’s Birthday!
She has been roaming the earth for 60 years now.
Luckily, I’ve been around for 38 years of that. Lucky for her or for me? Not really sure.
My Mom has always been a constant support for me. I always knew I could talk to her about anything and everything. Whether it was bad grades, my boyfriend’s, getting into trouble or any other life event.
In high school my girlfriends used to want to stay the night on school nights just to get one of my Moms homemade lunches packed for them. When I went away to college my Mom used to make the 2hr journey, 4hr round trip just to bring me groceries from Costco. After getting married she still was there whenever I needed her.
Supporting me in all the ups and downs of life. In the room for the birth of all my children. Watching these kids before or after school while I was working fulltime. Bringing coffee, diet sodas and snacks galore to our family. Most importantly still there as someone to talk to. As life would have it, sometimes I get to be that person for her as well.
Happy Birthday Mom! Thank you for loving me unconditionally, Lord knows I haven’t always made it easy.
