and I am so grateful for her
and the times that we have shared
(sometimes laughing until we cry)
Because I realize...
There is no other relationship on the planet
comparable to that of a mother and her daughter
the same thing at
the same time
and I have to
(sometimes laugh until I cry)
at the realization of just how strong my mother's influence is in my life
Then the other day...
when she arrived at our house and sat her purse down on the counter next to mine
I couldn't help but notice just how much like momma I've become!
And when I went to grab my camera, she knew...
and said "yeah, I noticed that too"
of having a mother
of being a mother
because those types of blessings just shouldn't be taken for granted
And even if it means...
that the older I get
the more like her I will become
I am fine with that
I am happy with that
because I know that it means
she was here
she made a difference
an impression in my life
I could become the woman that I am...
available and always
ready to be used
Happy Mother's Day 2015!
