It surprises me how I am still able to love and appreciate my mother more as each day passes. My mother has always been my ultimate role model... the person I wanted to "BE" when I was a child. She was the center of my little universe. It still catches me off guard to realize that the utter devotion and adoration that I felt for her as a child was just a hint of what was to come.
It wasn't until I became a mother that I began to truly realize all she's done and all she is.
I hear her voice as I comfort my children.
I also hear her voice when I lecture my children ;)
I like that.
I like that I was right when I was 5. I wanted to be just like my mother... and I still do. She's the ultimate "mom role model". I love when I am able to see her in myself... it means I'm doing a good job.
Thank you for being you Mom. I love you so much! Happy Mother's Day!
