Who would've thought? There's some wisdom in will.i.am's lyrics "Baby, where'd you get your body from? I got it from my mama."Okay so I'm not exactly talking about getting your junk in the trunk from your mom (although if you did get a nice booty from her, feel free to thank her this Mother's Day!) What I mean is I have inherited so many things from my mom- a big heart, the desire to please others, confidence, and integrity, among a multitude of other things. Every quality that is similar to hers in any way, I am grateful for because my mom is such an amazing and inspirational person. And I never ever ever tell her that.
If you're anything like me, and
I made one for my Grandma & my mom because it was so fun & painless. Here's a picture of the front of the one I made for my Grandma. Cute right?
I cannot begin to thank my mom (& my Grandma too!) for everything that she has done for me. How many times has she stayed up with me when I have another ear infection and am screaming from the excruciating pain? Without fail she does my laundry. She doesn't even hesitate to come and pick me up from Madison which is 3 and a half hours away when I need to go home for something. She's always surprising me with gifts or treats. I'm spoiled.
A couple weekends ago was my sorority's Mom's Weekend where we did fun activities with our moms and our "sisters". I was so happy to have my mom there. We had so much fun. And my mom was the ultimate trooper! She's usually passed out on the couch by 9 PM every night (ya know gotta get that beauty sleep in!) but she stayed out with me until midnight (a.k.a. a new record) just to make sure that I was having fun. Basically what I'm trying to say is if I turn out to be half as good of a mom as her, I'll be in pretty good shape. So here's to getting it from your mama!
