when i'm feeling down, stressed, sad, frustrated, overwhelmed, depressed, lonely, or negative, i call my mom.
she is a great lady, this mom of mine.
she tells me, "you can do this!" in a way that makes me believe it.
she says, "i'm so proud of you!"
when i'm feeling like i have such a long way to go, she says, "look how far you've come."
when i tell her that hubby and i are having an argument, she never picks sides.
i know she always has my back.
her prayers are something mighty to behold. they are a force to be reckoned with, and that makes her the most powerful woman i know. luckily she uses her powers for good.
she is cheerful. she is a dang hard worker. she is an amazing gardener and mind-blowing quilter. she makes the best bread and rolls (among other things)i've ever tasted. but the thing she is best at is mothering. in all senses of that word.
y'know how people always say that girls grow up to be just like their mothers?
i can only wish.
