happy birthday, mom
i'm not a very good writer; i can usually write what i mean, but often not HOW i mean it -- maybe i need to learn more adjectives. in any case....here are a few of my favorite things about my mom. (the muum
- i have always felt loved. no matter how bad i was being (and i had some pretty bad moments), she loved me.
- she knows how to laugh, and does so frequently
-she taught me the things i'd need to know when i 'grew up' - cooking, laundry, cleaning, gardening, how to take care of myself, and the fine art of financial security. (my dad helped, too, of course - this is just my mom list).
- she is the most empathetic person i know. i always feel like she 'gets' what i'm going through, even if it's something she may not have been through personally before, she has an uncanny ability to see where pain and hurt can come in.
- on the opposite face of that coin, she is not easily offended or hurt - she has a thick skin, and always assumes that people mean well. one thing i learned from her is that most people are doing the best they can with what they have.
- she is completely unselfish. i guess that's what being a mom is all about, but even now, she wants the best for me and is happy to settle for less.
- she is welcoming and warm -- i love going 'home' to visit, even though i didn't grow up there, it is where my parents are, and i know i'm welcome for as long as i want to stay, or as little time as i have to stay.
- she roots for me and helps me try to realize my dreams.
i love you mom.
