Mom's The Word

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ”

- Washington Irving (via Mary Rambin)

Words can't express how much my Mom means to me. I feel like the luckiest little girl in the whole wide world. She's not just a mother, she's also a best friend. I (still) tell her everything. She's always the first person I go to when I have something to share; good or bad. I can count on her for love and support, no matter what. I look forward to talking to her every day (often more than once). My Mom is always capable of calming me down when I'm anxious and helping me put things into perspective. She's more than a role model- she's my hero.

Mom, I am so blessed to have you in my life. You inspire me more than you could ever know. I love you.
