Greetings my sparkly little love monkeys! It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday so I’ve gotten together with my fellow Omnific Sisters to pay homage to those special ladies in our lives.
I’m here to talk about this lady
Wait, hang on, as much as I love this beautiful photo of my mom, I have to be honest, that isn’t the real her.
THERE SHE IS! This, ladies and germs is the lady I know. My mom, a lady that isn’t afraid to let the wind in her hair, literally!
In all seriousness there aren’t words to express my love and adoration of my mom. She’s not only my mom, but she’s my best friend.
Yeah, when my brother and I were kids we drove her bonkers. But beside all the times we made her want to pull all her hair out, move to Outer Mongolia, change her name and take up sheep herding, she taught me a lot. She taught me how to be a strong woman, to stand up for myself and not take anyone’s crap. She taught me that being a mom may not be a “glory” job but it is the most rewarding and sometimes the most heartbreaking one that there is. She taught me that it’s okay, as a mom, to feel like you want to pull all your hair out, move to Outer Mongolia, change your name and take up sheep herding. She’s lifted me up when I needed a boost and taken me down a peg or two when it was needed. She keeps me grounded and I know that no matter what, she has my back. She has stood beside me every step of the way through my journey into publication and I’ll tell you what, she is the best little pimper out there! I don’t think there is a person that has met her in recent years that has not heard the words, “my daughter, the author/writer” come out of her mouth because God love her, she will work that into a conversation if she has to bend over backwards and do a cartwheel. She truly is the best not to mention she’s not afraid to do this…
Or even this…
Yep, couldn’t ask for a better role model, I just hope that I’m doing her proud.
Until next time,
Oh yeah, I almost forgot the Photo-A-Day in May photo!
