To all of the mothers out there, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Today’s reflection: I am so blessed to have been raised by a woman whose heart was bigger than I could have ever asked for. Her amazing cooking fueled my soul growing up…oh the cooking! She inspired me daily to be a better person. I can honestly say, I have never met a more hard working person. Our family had many ups and downs, but she always had a brave face on. She worked tirelessly to take care of us, even when we knew she stretched her body to the max working 60 hours a week at times. Because of her influence, I have always wanted to be the best mother for #LittleLove and never disappoint her. My mother taught me to always use my manners, to never give up, to work hard, to value my friendships, to always appreciate family time, and to enjoy life to the fullest. I can only hope to be the mother to my sweet little girl as you were to me. Happy Mother’s day mom (aka Lola). I LOVE YOU WITH ALL OF MY HEART.
To my #LittleLove…you are the most amazing thing to ever happen to my life. You have brought me so much joy. I love being your mommy. Without you, life would be boring and incomplete. I love that at the young age of almost nine, you have so much passion for life. You are kind to your friends and family. You make people smile. You are generous, adventurous, determined and stubborn (like me). So today, I celebrate my proudest accomplishment- Thegift of being your mommy. Spending time with you today was pure joy! Thank you my sweet love! Thank you for the title of “mommy.”
Thank you to my amazing and incredibly kind friend that treated this tired mommy to a beautiful weekend of incredible food and activities. I am so thankful!
My heart is full from all the weekend LOVE from the special people in my life.
Happy Mother’s Dayagain to all the amazing mothers out there! Especially my sister, sisters in law, aunts and cousins. Love you and miss you daily!
