is for Mom
Today I'm grateful for my Mom. She lives far away (ok I live far away) and I miss her everyday. Mom's are great in so many ways - they get to add titles to their resume without ever having an interview - chef, seamstress, hairstylist, coach, cheerleader, therapist, counselor ....To list all the things a Mothers' love provides would fill this blog and several more.
My decisions to move farther and farther from home have tugged on her heart for 9 years now. When we moved to Chicago 5 years ago she spent a week with my husband back in Tennessee selling things and packing up our house. Her heart was breaking but she smiled right through it. A best friend, supporter and nurturer, I feel most comfortable when I'm around her. I know I can truly relax. I am so blessed to say our relationship has always been easy. When I need 'girl gab time' she's the 1st person I call. Even through teenage years there was a mutual respect for each other and we never fought. In fact, the only time I can remember her being really truly mad at me was when I pulled an April fool's and told her we were moving to Russia!
Mom's are the best.
What are you grateful for today?
