The truest friend

13 May

“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” – Washington Irving

I find Mother’s Day a little silly. We go through all this trouble to thank the woman who brought us into this world, when it’s something we should be doing on a regular basis. I have so much to thank my Mom for, and there’s no way I could possibly do it in one day. I feel so blessed for having such a strong, loving, beautiful person in my life.

So to my Mother on this day, thank you for everything – for rocking me to sleep when I was crying, for never judging the decisions I make, for putting up with my wild shenanigans, for loving me unconditionally and for always being there when I need you most. You truly are a gift.

I love you Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!
