There’s only a few people who have been there for me from the very very beginning: one of them being my Mom. Her birthday is coming up this next week, so I figured it’s the perfect time to write about her in the Woman Crush Wednesday column.
She has done and given so much for and to me over the past 30 years and I am forever grateful for that. She and my Dad raised my younger brother and I and I think they did pretty good. She gave me my sense of empathy and my giving spirit. She also gave me so much of my looks, too.
I’ve been having some moments, more as I get older they get more frequent, where I realize she’s really influenced me. I tend to say a few of the statements she repeatedly says and I don’t hate it. Her enjoyment of exploring is something that she has also passed on to me, for sure. I love to adventure (as I post about often) and she is one that does quite a bit of since retiring.
I”m so thankful for this lady and I can’t say enough about how much that fact is trun. Love you, Mom!
