One of a kind

mtt7Ok here I go…I have to start off by saying, there is nothing more in life that I love other than being a mom and I have only one person to thank for that and that is my mother. No one knew how to appreciate life more than her. She taught me to accept the things that I had no control over yet take charge of what I could. My mom always said stop worrying. Worrying is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do but gets you nowhere. I am finally starting to get a grip of what she was trying to tell me after all these years. I have no one else to thank but her for making me the strong individual that I am today and learned from her how to “not take shit from anyone.” I don’t mean to be so blunt but that is what she used to tell me; don’t live your life for anyone but yourself. You will never be able to please everyone so stop trying. My mother wasn’t perfect, nor am I and neither of us ever claim to be but we both felt that if you can’t accept us for who we are then move on. We most certainly did not have the perfect mother/daughter relationship but after our little tiffs we’d take turns sending each other a text and say, are you over it bitch? Yea, yea I am so when are we going to the casino? No argument was worth keeping us apartment no matter what it was over. I could go on and on about her for hours but what I really want to say is that she was truly an amazing mother and the best friend I ever had. For those of you who still have your mom today, don’t take her for granted and accept all her flaws with a grain of salt. Life is so short and if I would have known that she wasn’t going to be with me on this Mother’s Day, I would have done things a little bit more differently. I would have spent a lot more time with her and I would have had more patience. Everyone should do the same because you are all so lucky that you have that chance to make things right. On that note, I want to wish the best Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms in my life. Enjoy the day with your babies and give thanks for having the ability to say Happy Mother’s Day to your mom.
Another huge Happy Mother’s Day goes out to my other Mom(Jer)who I don’t get to talk to as much as I’d like to but I know when I pick up that phone she is always there to listen to me vent and just talk about anything and everything. Thank you for always, always being there for me and loving me unconditionally. Love you so much Mom xoxo
We are so lucky to have such wonderful women in our lives that have treated my kids and I like we are their own without question or hesitation. Thank you Grandma Jo, Aunt Deb, Aunt Keekee, and Cindy ❤ You are all the best and we are so very fortunate you came into our life.
Have a great day everyone and Happy Mother’s Day.
I love you mom ❤

This is me. I'm a mom, a sister, a daughter, and friend. At times, and MOST of the time I live an ordinary life lol. I have two amazing teenage boys that I refer to ask my rocks. They are definitely as solid as they come and I am so grateful and blessed to have them in my life. I’m a teacher’s assistant and absolutely positively LOVE my job. Omg there is no greater pleasure in life then getting paid to do what you love to do. I’m not perfect nor is my life, but I try every day to get it right. This is my story and my journey. I hope you find some of my posts helpful, inspiring, useful, and not too boring lol. Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear some of your comments and questions if you have any to share.
