Looking back on how I’ve come to be who I am, I can only say thank-you to my mommy. She has played such an influential role in shaping me to be who I am. Funny how now that I have been on my own for so many years, I truly appreciate all the sacrifices and love that she’s given me. Even when it wasn’t apparent to the naked eye, or when she was using reverse psychology to get me to do things I didn’t want to do. I know that she only wants the best for me and only wants to see me shine.
Sometimes I feel as though I can never live up to her standards and in some capacity, I won’t ever. However, I know that whatever I am, or whatever I become, she will stand by me and my decisions…..at least that’s what I would like to believe. *cheeky grin* Our relationship is ever growing, ever changing, and yet one thing will always remain constant; She will always be older than me, wiser than me, and will always love me…just as much as I love her.
Sending love from many kilometres away. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
