I first heard that quote in the movie, The Crow, with Brandon Lee. Well it wasn't that exact quote, they switched some words around and left out little, but the meaning was still the same. To most children, our mother is truly what we believe God to be: All caring, all knowing. My mother was that to me.
As I got older, I can't say that I always felt that way. But those were times when I was a stupid kid who thought she knew everything. How could my mother possibly understand what it was like to be a teenager? I mean really....who did she think she was, right? lol Good thing for me, I have greatly matured since those days. Today, I can honestly say that I am proud to call my mother my friend.
So, for the woman who took care of all of us when we were sick, even though she was just as sick. For the woman who rode backwards in a car (ugh, she does not like that all), on the curvy roads of Needles highway, holding coffee cans while her two daughters let their motion sickness get the better of them. For the woman who, still to this day, slaves for two days to make her most amazing homemade taco shells because she knows it's a family favorite. For the woman who taught me to be proud of who I am. For the woman who allowed me to live through those pesky teenage (and a little beyond, let's be honest) years. For the woman who taught me all about unconditional love....
I give you all I can give from so far away.....my love and my gratitude for all that you have done and continue to do for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, without you I would not be the woman I am today.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom! Love and miss you bunches! xoxoxo
