happy mother’s day.

my mom, just a few days before I was born! check out that wallpaper…

To the woman who has taught me how to be strong, independent, kind, respectful, generous and forgiving. Who taught me how to love passionately, fight for what I deserve, never give up on any goal I set or dream I pursue. Who taught me how to laugh at myself, how to laugh at the curves life throws you, how to laugh so hard that you cry. How to cry so hard that you laugh.

To the woman who has taught me how to make a home, how to fill a home with love – how to be a home within yourself. How to love food, love cooking and love to feed every mouth that walks into the kitchen. How to fill a freezer with so much homemade food that you’ll have enough to feed every mouth that walks into your kitchen from now until Christmas of next year.

To the woman who has taught me the true meaning of marriage and the power of unconditional love. Who has taught me the strength of a family and the real definition of being a good friend. Who has taught me the importance of being your own best friend.

To the woman who has taught me so much, yet continues to teach me something new every day. To the woman who has ultimately set the finest example of a everything a human being – let alone a woman –  can be:

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you.

  1. Thank you for the beautiful tribute. I am so proud to say that I have a daughter who has learned well and who loves me enough to point out only the positive! Love you so much !

  2. This post gave me goosebumps! I hope Emma will have such kind words for me when she grows up. After meeting your mom several times, I must agree that she’s pretty amazing!

  3. Awe! Such an endearing ode to your Mama! You really do have a way with words. I think your Mama is equally blessed to have such a wonderful daughter…but then again, she has herself to thank for that! :)
