Okay so this might not be the best picture of my mother and I, but it's all I've got. (hint hint wink wink) Any Hoo--Mother's day is just around the corner and I wanted to say a couple of things. My mother is someone I've always considered my role model. Ever since I was a little girl I've looked up to her. I remember being only 5 years old and bragging to our neighborhood babysitter that my mommy made the best monster cookies. And she does. I remember being 10 years old and sick with Pneumonia and my mother made me feel better just by her touch. I remember when I was 14 years old and felt like the world was crashing down on me, my mother was there to pick up the pieces-no matter how big or small. I remember when I was 16 years old and got my heart broken for the first time, my mother was there to wipe away my tears. I remember when I was 18 years old and graduated high school, my mother was in the stands cheering louder then anyone. I remember when I was 20 years old and gave birth to my first born son, my mother was there to hold my hand and tell me to push. I remember when I was 21 years old and I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl, my mother was there to hold my hair back and tell my to breath. I remember when I was 25 years old and left my abusive husband, my mother was there to shelter me and show nothing but love and support. I remember when I was 28 years old and wanted to marry my first love, my mother through me the most wonderful wedding any little girl could have ever imagined. I remember when I was 31years old and had to make the hardest decision of my life, my mother was there to smooth out my fears. My mother is the life that I breath. She is the reason that I'm alive. She's my Mommy and I love her!!
