She loves the color red and this really weird drink called Kombucha. She possesses the miraculous ability to light up a room when she walks in, and just by smiling she can make anyone’s day.
Her hobbies include dish washing 101 classes for her daughters and dancing around the kitchen to really loud music with the sliding door open. Her job includes working as a quality assurance specialist (engineer) and being a full time single mom of two.
Two amazing, awesome kids that I just happen to be one of. 😉
This article is dedicated to my crazy, care-free, happy-go-lucky mother.
Now, I do have to admit that most of the time, my mom annoys me to death. The hour long lectures that I hear almost everyday are definitely not appealing, nor is the whole ‘you will hug me whether you like it or not’ requests. But I can honestly say (or write) that I really do love her. ❤
Usually when my mom asks me if I love her or not, I usually respond with a yes and then when she asks why, I utter a simple “because you’re my mom”, and no, that is not the only reason. I feel like my mom deserves a more in-depth explanation of exactly how much I do love her and why.
So here we go…
I love her because she’s not afraid to stand out and be exactly who she wants to be. She doesn’t care that everyone on the highway has front seat viewing when she attempts to dance while driving. Being different and sticking out in a crowd and in society isn’t something my mom dreads, it’s something she gladly welcomes and appreciates about herself.
I love the way she can be so unbearably upset with me or my sister one second, and then pull her phone out to show us a meme that she found hilarious the next.
I love the fact that she deals with my sister and I no matter what we do and loves us for all of our flaws, and believe me, we have a lot of them.
And last but not least, I love how strong of a woman she is. My mom has been through a lot and she’s gone through life with a smile on her face 24/7. She’s dealt with two kids that push her limits sometimes but she still manages to still keep her cool most of the time.
I don’t know what I’d do without the late night heart-to-heart conversations and the constant reminder to drink water and do all that other healthy stuff.
I think I’d be lost without all the helpful guidance throughout the years and the reminder that everything is going to be just fine.
I’d go crazy if she stopped doing all the little things that matter more than anything to me. Like how she gets annoyed when my glasses are dirty, and manages to find that one little piece of paper on the floor in my room.
If I had a dollar for each time she found something on the rug of my bedroom, I still wouldn’t have enough money to represent how much I love her.
I would like to thank my mom for inspiring me to start this blog and for showing me that dreams really can (and do) come true.
Happy Mother’s Day!
I Love You Mom!
