Went to visit my mother for Mother's Day. I love that woman. I'm a sucker for my mother. My mom has always been my biggest cheerleader, giving me hope when I had none, building me back up when I was at my lowest.

My mom was a teen mom (before it was on MTV) and she's always had high expectations of me. She has always wanted better for me than what she had but what I really love about her is that she was never a victim of her circumstances.
We didn't grow up in the lap of luxury and for the majority of my childhood, my mom raised me and my sister as a single mom (before she met my stepdad and my youngest sister was born.)
But we never went without the necessities or wants for that matter. Now, as an adult, I know that my mother struggled but I never felt that as a child.
She told me that she never wanted us to know how tough it was and I didn't for a really long time. And that enabled me to be a kid. And for that, I am grateful.
Even though my mom thinks that I am too hard on myself, she has always respected whatever decisions that I make and been there whenever I have needed her. But she's also tough when I don't want her to be but need her to be. And I know that whatever comes my way, she will always, always show me unconditional love.
My mom is a talented artist, a social butterfly, she's loyal to her friends and dependable to a fault. She's a voracious reader, quick witted, generous, constantly open to trying new things and loves to laugh. I'd like to think that I've inherited a little bit of some of what makes me and everyone else love her so much.
Happy Mother's Day to my mommy.
She's the absolute best.....
