I know a lot of bloggers dedicate posts to their mom on Mother’s Day. I am going to follow this trend as well because my mom is truly amazing. To put it bluntly, there has never been a time when I couldn’t call my mom when I needed something. My mom helped to organize, plan and make my wedding incredible. She has been there through everything in my life.
I feel like my dad is often seen more on the blog because he does races so appears there. am just as close with my mom as well. My mom has been there for me 100% of the time and for that I cannot thank her enough. Of course when I was younger, we had our fair share of rifts. I was young, I thought I knew everything about anything. (I mean…wait…I don’t?). Everyone was a bratty at some point in middle and high school (me probably especially).
As some of my long term readers know, my dad was in the military for a full 30 years (meaning until the end of my freshman year of college). While growing up my mom raised us when dad was away on travel. She moved us back from overseas (That is over 16 hours of flying with 3 kids under the age of 6, 2 dogs and 2 cats). She moved us alone.
My mom also helped plan, coordinate and help with our wedding. Without my mom, I am 100% certain the wedding would not have been as successful, as fun or everything I dreamed about. I will never be able to be thankful enough for that. I am truly grateful for my mother and everything she has done for not only me, but my brothers and family as well.
Happy Mothers Day to my mom and all moms out there.
