My Ma and Me

Happy Mother's Day!! This is my mom and me after church today. I love my mom so much. It has always just been me and my mom. She is an excellent mom. I am glad that now that I am older that she is not just my mom but she is also my friend. When growing up, it has always been just my mom and me. My mom and I did alot of things together, and still do, I went to her college classes with her, she was at all of my dance recitals and band concerts and she even was there as a grown adult when I got my gallbladder removed. I love my mom so much and sometimes I think that I do not tell her enough.
I really appreciate all the things that my mom has taught me, especially since I have been going through this wedding planning process. She taught me how to cook, how to clean, how to be a lady and how to be a strong woman. She has always taught me to speak my mind, I am sure she would prefer that I do not do it as often as I do, be the person that I want to be and to follow my goals.
I am very proud of my mother. She has always put me first and at time put her goals on the back burner. I was proud when my mom earned for Associates degree and I was even prouder when she earned her Bachelors degree (we graduated together). I am proud of all that she has accomplished in her life, and I hope that I continue to make her proud in all that I do.
My fiance has a daughter. We are not always on the same page (she is a teenager), but I hope that I am able to be a mom to her and any other future children, that my mom is to me. I am not sure how else to say it, but I love my mom to pieces and I will cherish her forever.

Dana, that is a beautiful thing you posted about your mom. I love the fact that you and your mom are best friends. My mom and I are best friends to the end. Yesterday I wanted to make it church but because my mom was feeling under the weather I stayed by her side and talked with her the whole day. Even though we may not always see eye to eye, I value her opinion and encouraging words. I'm sure you will have the same relationship with Shakelyah, she is just growing and maturing right now, but later she will value all the things about you and the relationship you have with her. Just wait and see! Love Tina
