Happy Mother’s Day Mom! I Love You!

I wrote this post about my mom on Mother’s Day 2009.  And while my life has changed a lot in the past two years, the same truths about my mother still apply.  I couldn’t ask for a better mother.  She is unconditional love personified, and I am grateful and lucky to call her Mom.

I live over a thousand miles from my mom, but she’s still one of my closest friends. We talk on the phone at least once almost every day. She can be aggravating at times, but I’m guilty of that more often than she is. =) And she has always had the ability to comfort me or make me laugh regardless of how far apart we are.


She is definitely the strongest woman I know, and she’s also an incredibly talented singer. She speaks sign language and French as well (perhaps even better) than she speaks English…and she always keeps her word. She gives good hugs and makes the best fried chicken, pork roast and gumbo anyone could ever taste. And even in our roughest times, I never doubted her love for me.





She has sacrificed SO MUCH of herself and her life to be sure that my sister and I had opportunities that she didn’t have or that she knew we should have.


From the sneakers on our feet to the trips to Disney World and Europe she and my dad have provided opportunities for me that helped to mold my world view. And I will, forever, be in debt to her for that.


When I was growing up I was selfish. And I suppose I’m still pretty selfish though my mom never has been. I owe my parents everything I am and more. She rarely gets the credit she deserves, but I could never say thank you enough to Mom for helping me become the person I am. I’m so lucky to have her as a mom, and I hope she lives forever…!
