Mother’s Day Reminds Me It’s Good To Get Older!!

Me & momma...I love her!

It’s no secret I’m a Daddy’s girl…always have been and always will be. One of the reasons I think that happened is he pretty much let me do/say whatever I wanted and for the most part he thinks I can do no wrong.

On the other hand my mom was the disciplinarian and kept me together so in my head she was not the cool parent.

Ohhh but then you grow up and realize this woman is freaking amazing and if it wasn’t for her I’m not sure where I would be.

The older I get I realize how awesome she is…I really see that everything she ever did was for the good of my brother and I.

Yes, she may have been tough but Lord knows I needed it.

I think back now of all I had and all she did and how she never slept (she still doesn’t sleep) and I’m like man she is remarkable. I don’t care how many hours she worked we always had home cooked meals. I gained so much weight when I went to college because I was finally able to eat out whenever I wanted. No lie I don’t think I ever had hamburger helper until college.

There were so many things I wanted to do that I thought made sense and she was like “NO” there was no discussion. She was the because I said so parent LOL! And I can say without a doubt not one of them would have me where I am now.

Even at 38…almost 39 in exactly a week (plug LOL) she still takes care of me as if I am still a kid. She never stops being a mom no matter how old we get. She isn’t that parent that said once you are 18 I am done she is always there.

This last year has been rough with everything going on with my dad but she hasn’t skipped a beat. You would think something would lack because she has taken on more. Nothing has she is still the same…I think she is the energizer bunny.

So, when I say Mother’s Day reminds me it’s good to get older it is because now I am able to see her true greatness and truly appreciate it.

The older I get I realize all she sacrificed and I am so thankful that she is still here for me to tell her.

In addition to that she is kind of my friend now…don’t get it twisted she is a momma first and does not play so I still have to watch it. But our relationship has grown over the years and only me getting older could allow that.

If I am fortunate enough to become a mother one day I can only pray I am half the Mother she is and if I am one day my kid will write about me.

Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mother and all the other amazing mom’s out there!!
