Things my mom taught me
How to be grateful for all the things we have, big or small
How to treat others as we would like to be treated
How to always say please and thank you
How to NOT judge a book by its cover
How my attitude is everything and it can make or break me
How to laugh with abandon…..the list goes on and on. So much so that I was able to write her nearly an entire year’s worth of things I’m thankful for about her. So much of the person I am today was shaped by my mother. I’m fortunate enough to have a really great mom. She was a young mom but she took her job serious and I benefited from her courage and commitment. Other boys and girls were not as fortunate. She took exceptional care of me. I can’t thank her enough for that. I still think she is the most beautiful person inside and out. She still protects me and she still wants the very best for me. She will always be my mom no matter how old I keep getting. I’m proud of her. It feels good to have a mom like her. So today. I just wanted to acknowledge her, to say thank you. I love you mom to the moon and back infinity squared.
