Word to ya Motha

So on this one day out of the year, we celebrate Mothers. The new, the young and the old, we celebrate, honor and remind them all just how special they all are to us. Hopefully as the child, I have shown my Mothers all my love and appreciation I carry for them each and every day, not just on Mother's Day. My Mother and Mother in law are truely the two most amazing women I know. I love you both so very much, without the both of you, my family would not be where it is today. Thank you.

It's on this day that I look forward to hearing "Mom, you are the bestest mommy ever" but in reality I'm blessed. I'm blessed because I do hear that most days. I do have those special hugs in the morning and our Eskimo kisses at night. Each and every day I am proud to be JC's mommy, but hearing it on Mother's Day is just seems so very perfect and tugs on my heart.

As a child I remember I remember trying to make every Mother's Day perfect, my sister and I would pamper my mom in all the ways we knew how. You know, make her breakfast and not realize that we left a sink full of dishes for her, or plant flowers and tear up the yard or wash her car and leave it more of a mess than when we had started. All those little actions to show her how much we loved her and as a Mother now, I can appreciate it even more.

My mother has taught me a great deal in life. To be strong, to believe, to love and how to be the bestest mommy ever. I learned from the best if I do say so myself. A woman who sacrificed so much in her life as a single parent. Her strength and love fueled my sister and I as young girls and made us the women we are today. For that I thank you mom. I love you.

I may have a family of my own,
but I truly believe that every mommy still needs their mom.
Happy Mother's Day Mom.

I love you
