My Mom Is My Rock

Mother’s day is often one of the most frustrating holidays for me because I never know what to get my mom.

She is not your average woman who likes diamonds and all of that fancy stuff, plus she has everything so it’s super hard to go out and actually buy something for her.

How do I show the woman that means everything to me how much I love her on Mother’s Day?

To be honest, it wasn’t until I had my own children did I understand the full magnitude of everything she has done for me. My mother was a single mom, but I never ever felt it. She was everything and all things I needed as a child and everything and all things I need as an adult.

And although I don’t like to admit it to her to give her the satisfaction, I am a lot like her and I am okay with that :). She is my best friend. When I think of something funny, I call her. When I need an opinion, I call her. I basically call her for everything in the world. I will forever call her!

Words can’t simply describe how lucky I am to have this beautiful, strong, caring, giving woman in my life!

I love you mommy!
