I will start by start by saying my mom has always been there for me but even just typing that doesn’t do it justice. As many readers know, I’m extremely close with my mom.
Growing up in a military family, my mom took care of my brothers and I while my dad was deployed.
She moved 3 children under the age of 6 plus 2 dogs and 2 cats across the world when dad had to be at work.
As I went through middle school, my mom was there. Like most middle schoolers, I can’t say I was best behaved or pleasant to be around. She took care of us.
She was there for me through my ups and downs of the teenage and high school years. Like many teenagers, I never appreciated my mom as much as I should until I left for college.
During college, I began missing my family and went through quite a bit of rough patches. I always knew I could call my mom and chat. She helped when I switched majors, ended a relationship and quit swimming all within a month of each other.
Now as a 26-year-old adult, I feel so lucky to be close with my mom. Last week, she drove up from Virginia, and we hung out.
My mom has always been supportive of everything I can, and I could never ask for anyone better.
My mom has truly always there for me. Every year when I reflect upon everything she has done for me, it has made me more grateful. She is supportive, and I could never imagine it any other way.
I am also grateful to have married into a wonderful family and be very close with my mother in law, Greta. I could not be any more fortunate.
So Thank You, Moms.
Thank you to all of the moms out there!
Question for you: Tell me something about your mom.
