Happy Birthday Mom!

With me being in Activity Days I see a lot of Mother and daughter relationships. It is so neat to watch because the daughter looks to her mother as a role model of what a woman is and the daughter acts like her Mother. I know first hand that as some of these girls grow up and see other woman who live their lives differently, will choose between imitating her mother or other significant influences in her life. As an adolescent I sometimes looked down on my mother and I thought that other woman were much better. Of course I wasn't a fully grown woman so I didn't understand the challenges and choices that my mother faced. It was only when I myself become a woman and a mother that I fully appreciated my mother. I pray that these girls will stick to their mothers and choose to be influenced by them and not what the world is telling them.

I love my Mom so much. I look up to her more than she knows. I still can't imagine that she raised 4 kids on her own without child support, had a baby die and have her own mother die at a young age. She's amazing and I hope that I have the strength that she has one day. I need to write her a letter and tell her this because she never looks on my blog. I still am going to talk about her though. I found this poem and it reminded me of my mom. Feel free to snag it for your own moms because mothers day is right around the corner! (Speaking of mothers day any ideas for the activity day girls? Ugh the stress! LOL)

Super Mom

Mom, you're a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.

You're patient when I'm foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do most anything;
You're the master of every task.

You're a dependable source of comfort;
You're my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than you know;
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You'd be the one I'd select!

On the other hand how could my mom leave me home today? Both of my sisters and my mom are in Disneyland today! :( I'm so jealous.... I keep getting picture messages and that is so mean. I can't be mad because what a fun day for my mom to celebrate her birthday at the happiest place on earth! Besides I can't go on any rides anyway. So I'm happy for them, still bitter LOL, but happy!

This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom... I call this picture minni me! It's crazy that her face never changed! She looks exactly the same as she did at age 2 just a full grown body now.

Here she is with Beck on Easter.

This makes me cry. I remember being young and thinking about your mom and wondering how she could be a mom and still go to work all the time. She is one tough cookie who never complained and said "wo is me!" She is a great example.
