I feel so blessed to part of my family. We are crazy and have fun. Occassionally there are fights, but we always work through it. They have always supported my choices and cheered me on. I appreciate that my parents have invited me back into their home as I've struggled financially. I know that they will always have my back.
I remember leaving for college. I appreciated that I could call my mom any time; to share my life, to ask help with recipes, to laugh and cry with, to pray with. I am blessed to not only be my mom's daughter, but also to be her friend.
A month or so ago my aunt gave my mom an envelope full of old pictures of her. I was given permission to share a couple.
Happy Mother's Day! This one's for you mom! (I've been singing it all day!)
