Queen Of My Heart

My mother…

I could go on forever about my mother. She is my favorite girl. When I was a girl, she always made sure to create fantastic memories with me and to show me that the world was bigger than my neighborhood.

She is a breast cancer survivor. She’s strong in ways that I’m not even sure she realizes.

She’s not afraid to be silly. She’s young at heart…

She loves me unconditionally. Really. There have been some times when I’m sure I was pretty hard to deal with and she has loved me through it all.

And I bet if you asked my daughter, she’d say she’s the best grandma ever. Since I was a 14yr old mom, she was definitely instrumental in making sure I got my mom skills together.
Like I said, I could go on and on about my mother. Mostly, I just want her to know that I love her the mostest. Happy birthday, Mommy!

Today is also my brother’s birthday

The Best Day Of My Life

Twenty-four years ago on January 23, at 12:05am, a 14 year old girl gave birth to a little 8lb 9oz butterball of a baby girl with a head full of soft, curly hair.

I didn’t know then that my life was changed forever.
We grew up and learned to navigate life together.

Times weren’t always easy but I tried to make sure she always knew she was special and loved. I always wanted to make sure she laughed more than she cried and knew more joy than pain.

Through it all, we’ve survived and thrived.
We’ve laughed together, cried together, prayed together and fought together. Your smile has gotten me through a lot of hard days.

I’ve been blessed to see 38 years on this earth so far and the best part has been the 24 years I’ve had the privilege of being your mom.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BABY GIRL!

Happy Birthday, Mama!

Today is my mother’s birthday! There aren’t enough words to express the love that I have for this woman. She is kind-hearted, generous with her time and resources and gorgeous to boot. She is the sweetest person I know and I’ve always tried to pattern myself after her. If I had to pick one word to describe my mother, it would be gift. She is God’s gift to me and I am thankful for her everyday.

Just me being me.
