Mother’s Day is Sunday and I am so blessed to say my mom is my best friend.
She is so special to me. She is my go to for all advice on all things because she knows everything. She could be a doctor, a psychologist, an interior design, a personal shopper, you name it- my mom knows something on the subject or will learn in mere minutes. She is funny, loving and the most giving person I know.
A daughter’s relationship with her mother is special- one that is hard to describe and one that is explained in glances, winks, hand gestures and memories. My love for her knows no end.
It is impossible for me to imagine my life without her, and there are so many of you out there that spend Mother’s Day remembering your mothers. I saw this poem recently and it stopped me in my tracks and gave me such comfort:
Your mother is always with you. She is the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street. She is the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not feeling well. She’s your breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sounds of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your mother lives inside your laughter. She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space...not even death.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, no matter where you are. To my MAMA- I love you so so much. I wish I could say more than thank you for all that you have done for me, but it always comes out as I LOVE YOU!
