I skipped writing this Friday, so I could specifically write today...
I MISS my mom SO much! There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her. I wish she would just move here with me ;) hehe
This post is going to be all about my mom, (well more of a letter to her) and why I am so thankful for her!
I know I've probably told this to you, over and over again...but I mean it from the bottom of my heart; words DO NOT even describe how amazing you are and how very blessed I am that you are in my life...that I get the privilege...no....the honor to call you my mother. Not only do I get to call you my mother, but my very best friend, and for that I am even more thankful!
Mom...I am so thankful for your heart. Your ability to show so much love is mind boggling! Your love that you have for God first...well it overflows into your love that you have for us...for me! You always went the extra mile for me, and not because you had to...but you did it willingly. Your faith has always been so strong, and your constant prayers for me and everyone that comes your way...has taught me to be a better person. I thank you for your passion. I sit and wonder sometimes, and I feel that one thing you were passionate about (and still are), was to love everyone around you, even if you only met them once. Your passion in serving, in helping, in being the "mom" to every single one of my friends or to everyone that came to know you. You continually pour your love. You are so caring, loving, thoughtful....and I am just constantly amazed and in awe of what an amazing person you are. People say that when God created the woman...that she was made in His image so we can see a glimpse of His heart. Mom, you are such a beautiful creation, and your reflection of Him is so evident in your life. I see it more and more every single day. No one cannot even compare. You are beautiful in every single way!
Thank you so much mom, for always encouraging me to follow my heart, and to do what I love and desire to do! You have always been there for me! You have pushed me to always be the better person. You believed in me, when I didn't believe in myself. You trusted me and had faith in me, when I didn't. You always and still do, have had high hopes for me, when I sometimes was hopeless. You protected me...always, even when I thought I didn't need it and I thought I could handle things on my own.
Thank you for ALWAYS being so honest with me, even when I might of not wanted to hear certain things. I always feel so blessed, because I know that I can come to you any second of the day and talk about anything! Some people don't have such a close relationship...but we do, and I wouldn't trade it for the world! You have helped me through thick and thin. Laughed with me, cried with me....ohhh, even when I got my first heartbreak...you were there. To help pick me up, and you cried with me, listened to me...you were there! You are always there! Mom....thank you for always being there! Thank you for never giving up on me! I am the person I am today....because of YOU! Because of the faith you had in me, the love you've given me, the guidance you've taught me and much much more! Thank you will never be enough to express what I feel, and how much I love you! I love you so much! I hope you know that I am always here for you! Always praying for you. For all that you've done for me in my life, and Lidia's and Nicky's...and everyone else's...you deserve only the best of the best. I love you, and I hope you know that you truly are a blessing to me and to every single person that knows you! Thank you for being YOU....the most selfless, giving, loving caring person out there that I know....thank you for being the most amazing mom! I LOVE YOU!
Your daughter always,
I wish I had all my pictures with me from back home, that way I could have scanned a ton to post...but here's just a few that you can see!*and yes i said scanned! haha I only started using digital about 5 years ago! haha*
To all of the mom's out there...you are all so very loved. And I know that everyone in your life has been touched by you in a great way or another. Thank you for all that you do! Happy Mother's day to all!
