My Mom is My Hero
My mom is pretty darn special. And I'd be kidding myself to say that I tell her enough how much I appreciate her. There aren't enough breaths in the day to thank her for all that she has done for me. She is damn funny and makes me laugh so much that I cry.
She is also a master of guilt trips, showed me a photo of herself waiting by a phone that never rings. “Mom, I call all the time,” I said. “If you had an answering machine, you’d know.” Soon after, my Dad installed one for her. When I called the next time, I got her machine: “If you are a salesperson, press one. If you’re a friend, press two. If you’re my daughter Donya who never calls, press 911 because the shock will probably give me a heart attack!" :))
I can talk to her about anything:
I know for a fact that no matter the issue and no matter the story, my Mom will listen to the entire thing with nothing but compassion in her heart. I don't ever need to wonder if she will judge me bc I know for a fact that she never will.
She has such a compassionate heart for others that I am constantly blown away by her devotion for serving those around her. If I (or anyone else) needs anything, my mom is the first one to jump up, drop everything & run to help. If I have half as much generosity as my mom someday, I know that I would be making a huge difference.
I know that no matter how old I grow to be, and how mature I may become, my Mom will always be there for me. She will always be waiting with open arms to either congratulate me or console me. I have never felt more loved by any other human than I do by my Mom, bc She loves me unconditionally.
I will never ever need to worry that she will stop loving me. No matter the circumstances, no matter the phase of life that I'm in, my Mom will always be there for me, loving me every step of the way.
I don't think I will ever meet another person more dedicated to my success and ready to celebrate my accomplishments than my mom. She is hands-down my biggest supporter and will always be standing at the finish line of whatever race I may be running. I could be crawling across that finish line and she'd still be cheering for me the whole way.
I can always count on her to point me in the right direction:
My mom will pray for me. She'll encourage me. She will lead by example and through the counseling that she is always ready to provide. I know that I can always count on her to push me in the direction of my dreams.
She has the best laugh:
I could pick my mom's laugh out of a crowd of hundreds. Her ability to laugh at herself (and at her own cheesy jokes) are part of what makes her so amazing. But the sound of my mom's laugh has the capability to make anyone's day, including mine.
She is hilerious beyond words can describe: I remember Mom had a small decorative windmill in our yard. A storm broke one of the blades, causing the windmill to shake violently. Dad announced that he would “take care of it” and rebalanced the windmill by snapping off the opposing blade. Watching him, Mom remarked, “I hope I never break a leg.”:))
To my Mom: I love you forever ❤️
