Today is my mommy’s day ! Help me to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY !
I don’t really know where to start when talking about my mom. She has been such a ray of sunshine in my life and we have come so far in our mother/daughter relationship and as a family! Her kind words & her smile has encouraged me more times than I can count. I have told people time and time again if I am unsure about having anyone else’s support in this world, I know for sure I have my mom’s. It took years for me and my mother to establish the close bond that we have today, have you ever heard that saying , GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME ?
I have learned a lot about my mother and myself through communicating with her and getting a better understanding of who she is and where she comes from. As much as I don’t like to admit it, because I want to be an “individual.” I can see a lot of my mother in myself, through my looks and some of my personality traits.
Fun Fact: My mom is the youngest of 10 siblings. Yep I have plenty of aunt’s, uncles, & cousins between both my mom and dad. Unfortunately I am closer with my mom, siblings, and other family on my dad’s side. Family is just family you can’t force them to change or be something they are not. Just love them and pray for change !
My mother was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her favorite color is blue, but she really likes turquoise, she likes the hulk, she loves roses, she has 5 biological children, and she has a smile that can light up a room & brighten your day. ☀️
My mom moved quite a bit when she was young. Overall, I believe her upbringing, childhood, and life now is a very inspiring story and I am honored to be writing a biography on her life. (will be released 2018).
Fun fact: When I was in high school me & my mom had matching haircuts , and also at one point we both had blonde highlights.
Fun Fact: Me & my mom have a lot of our own inside jokes! A funny thing that we do sometimes is when we call each other we answer the phone using a different voice, and it’s hilarious when she’s like hello, like who is this ! Sometimes she falls for it , other times not so much . haha
As silly as that may sound, I believe life is all about cherishing those silly moment because once people are gone, you can never get those moments back all you will have is memories. So why not make great memories now ?
Over the years my mother and I have not just become closer, she has become my best friend, a person I trust to call me out when I’m “doing too much” and support and compliment me when I am sticking to my morals, pursuing my goals and living by the morals & lessons she has taught me. I love experiencing and sharing my life with her as my mother and friend. She is such a beautiful person both outside and inside.
My mother even now continues to be open-minded enough to improve her thinking and understanding on different things and is constantly trying to improve on being a better parent and grandparent. For this, I salute her and love her even more. I don’t think we realize (myself included) how important it is to continue to improve daily, we are all imperfect and have things we should improve on.
Fun fact: In this picture you can see that me and my mother have matching tattoos, I guess in a way you can say I will always carry a piece of my mother with me no matter where I go, and she will always carry a piece of me.
I am very grateful that my mother has taught me to follow my convictions. My mother has also taught me wrong is wrong, and there is no way around it. I continue to learn from my mother and for this I am thankful. I am glad I get the opportunity of having such a courageous, loving, silly, fun, and awesome woman I get to call my mother!
Mom, thank you so very much for all the jokes you’ve told, for your hugs, questions you asked, late night talks, all the words of encouragement you have given me, for your support, for the times you took care of me when I was sick and for the movie/junk food days we’ve had hahah. Those Oreos! lol
Also thank you for always seeing me as a capable person who can get healing despite how the doctors have labeled me & how I have labeled myself. Know that you are appreciated and loved by God & by all the people who have gotten to know you! You are a ray of sunshine ! Continue to be a listening ear for others, a great-grandmother , mother, friend, and inspiration.
Happy Birthday to you my beautiful mother ! May God continue you to bless you and give you strength to overcome hardships and love unconditionally even when it seems impossible !
