Sometimes you think you’re burning bridges for the right reasons, until you realize you’re drowning without them.
Today I have had the overwhelming feeling that everyone thinks I should be sad. It is of course Mother’s Day, and I well… You know. But for me today is not a day of have and have nots. It is a day to remember how many incredible strong, loving, supportive women I have in my life. Some have stepped up to be role models and rocks in my life and others have raised wonderful children whom without I would be lost. I do not feel the need to glue macaroni to a piece of paper or buy flowers to show my gratitude to my mother or any of the other women in my life because for me every act is one of gratitude. I work for a better tomorrow. To make something of myself. To be the woman these women in my life inspire me to be. So much of who I am is thanks to my mom. I am grateful for the twenty beautiful years and all the wonderful quirks she gave me. When I look in the mirror I see a piece of my mother staring back at me, and to me there is no greater mother’s day gift than that.
If I could punch this 20 page paper in the face… I would.
