What’s up y’all! I know it’s supposed to be beauty week, you know, when I show y’all the look of the month, but I figured we’d switch it up a little. I mean it is Mother’s Day weekend, of course, and what’s more beautiful than a bond between a mother and daughter? So, this week is dedicated to my beautiful mother! Well, let’s explore. Indulge and Enjoy!
Every year, I try to think of creative ways to show my love and appreciation for you, on this day. This year, I figured why not share it with the world! As you journey with me today, I want you to know I am me because of you. My best attributes are a reflection of you and though we’ve seen some of the toughest times, the one thing I would never change is you!
Our relationship has literally been a roller-coaster ride. We’ve yelled, we’ve cried, we’ve even given each other the silent treatment. Now, we call each other at midnight, nothing’s wrong, we just want to watch TV together. As a child, I would beg you to leave me alone. Now, I blow your phone up if you don’t answer within, what I consider, a reasonable time. It’s crazy how time will mend a relationship. As our coaster balances out, I’m so glad we chose to ride together.
Your light shines brightly within me. It’s amazing to hear people tell me I light up a room because I’ve watched you do it my entire life. From your charming personality to your glowing smile, you’ve always been a magnet in this crazy world. The moments I found embarrassing growing up, are now the same ones I compare to my own actions and joke with you about (remember whippin’ and naenaein’ all through Sam’s Club, lol).
I know you’re a pretty private person, so I won’t put too much of your business on here. I just want you to know you’re all I could ever ask for in a mother. I thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do for me. You’re human and of course, you make mistakes. I just want you to know I appreciate those as well. You are one of the most caring, compassionate, loving individuals I’ve ever met. And, I pray I inherited those characteristics also. Though things aren’t perfect at this very moment, I want you to know I love and appreciate you beyond belief, and with us at each other’s side, we’re gonna be alright.
I can guarantee I’ll be talking to you within the next hour, however, always remember, “Loud cars need gas too!”
Happy Mother’s Day!
