Since I Never Get You a Card

I’m sure you won’t be shocked to know this is my mother. Since, you know, we look nothing alike.

Anyway, she had plenty of opportunities to leave me on the side of the road. No jury would have convicted her. Let’s not talk about the time I flicked a tear at her during my teenage nightmare years.

But, she didn’t. She’s one of my biggest cheerleaders. She understands my writing and how it’s important to me. I can’t count how many times she’s talked me off the ledge. Nor does she preen when I apologize for any past behavior when her grandchildren are driving me insane.

I’m proud to say she’s my mother. Don’t have any guilt when I tell people they can borrow her, but know they cannot have her she’s mine.

And, yes, this is the only blog post you can read. Do not scroll down and dally.

I love you, Mom. You should know this to be true, cause I’m doing this in public. 😉

Lastly, Happy Mother’s Day!

    That is so sweet. I have been offered to borrow your mom. I can;t wait to meet her, she seems like an amazing lady. And her daughter is not far behind her.
    Oh and so ya know I think most parents do the calling thing to their moms to apoligize, I know I do.

    Lol. It’s penance and it’s maybe if we apologize our kids will behave.

    How lovely and serene she looks.

    From the mother/grandmother’s point of view–it’s actually kind of fun when the grandkids pay their mom for a little of her teenage–call it acting out. But I will also tell you that it’s the grandkids that help mother and grown daughter really get to know one another, really feel that kinship that comes from their mutual womanhood and motherhood.

    And she has gorgeous eyes.
