Well any day that celebrates my beautiful Mother gets the thumbs up from me. She is, without a doubt; the most generous, loving and amazing person I know in the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD. Where do I start? How about she gave me 7 brothers and sisters, she told me that I could be whatever I wanted to be and she worked her ass off to put me through college. But what stands out most is all the little things that she does and how selfless she really is. During the Christmas holidays I was really sick....like crippled with pain and she would sit by my side and not move until I was sound asleep and pain free. The endless heat packs and back rubs and small prayers comforted me beyond words.
I am my Mothers daughter and there's nothing else in the world that I want or need to be.
This is what she has taught me so far:
Give your best to others, and give with all your heart
Give thanks to God everyday for everything
Money comes and money goes but the Lord will always provideLove your Father (she lost hers when she was a little girl)
Family comes first (she is always calling our family all over the world...just to keep in touch)
Singing makes you happy (she used to work in a retirement village and she would brighten the place up so much by singing and wearing flower crowns...the oldies loved her)
That I am beautiful
It doesn't matter what you do or how much money you make...all that really matters is the type of person you are.
What I love about her:
That she is somewhat technologically challenged (she won't touch the computer and it took her years to realise that my sister and I weren't going to break our Dad's computer by just using it)
That she creates with her hands (crocheting, embroidery, sewing, beading....she's good at it all)
The fact that I benefit from her creativity (beanies, scarves, bracelets, necklaces, pillowcases, dresses)
How selfless she isHow she laughs and poses for photos (she tries really hard when we are like "MUUUMMM smile properly!)
That she is my MamiThat she looks after my rabbit and tells me how he is in the letters she writes
So heres to you my dear Mother.....
