Mother’s Day

As most readers know, I’m extremely close to my mother.  I’m not a mom myself, but I can truly say my mom has always been there for me every situation.

When I was younger, my mom took care of my brothers and I while my dad was away on travel and deployments.

When we moved back to the US from overseas, my mom moved three children under the age of 6, 2 dogs and two cats across the world by herself.

During the “rough” middle school and teenage years, I wasn’t a pleasant child, and my mom was still always there for me.  Even during the yelling and screaming.

She was there for me through childhood turmoils of high schools and helped me keep on when I didn’t think I would.

When I went away to college, she was always just a phone call away.

She was there for me when I switched majors, ended a relationship and quit swimming all within a month of each other.

My mom has always been supportive and I could never ask for anyone better.

Now that I’ve flown the coop she is still here for me.  She was there for during wedding planning and helping have the most memorable day of my life.

She even made the gorgeous Flower Girl dress.

My mom has truly always there for me. Every year when I reflect upon everything she has done for me, it makes me more grateful.  She is supportive, and I could never imagine it any other way.

Now I’m incredibly lucky to be so close with my mother in law as well.  She has been there for both my husband and I throughout our life together.

So thank you, moms.
