She Gets It...

...and here's where I get all sentimental on y'all.

My mama and I met up last night for wine and dessert, it's one of the things I'm going to try to take as much advantage of as I can while we live so close to each other. After our little date night of eating sweet treats and drinking wine out of glasses as big as our heads, I left amazed once again at what a cool mom I've been blessed with.
She told me not to post this pic, sorry mom!
My mom's been through a lot in her life, nothing earth-shattering but some things that should have been easy have been a little harder. Despite all this, she has the best attitude out of anyone I've ever met.

She understands what's important in life, and has tried to pass those same values on to me (even though sometimes I struggle). She's the rock that holds our family together, and is strong for everyone else when they need it. I try to be that same rock for her, not because I feel like I have to be, but because I want to be, because she's my she's my best friend and that's what best friends do.

She gets that it's all about the moments in life, about taking advantage of those times we have with one another, and not worrying about the petty things. I've never seen her stress about things like gossip, or "mean girls", an attitude that's rare among women.

She really just enjoys the moments, the time we have together, and loves her family.

Everyday I strive to have an attitude like hers, and I hope that she knows just how amazing I think she is. I really am her biggest fan.

It's funny... My mom and I are close, but we never used to be as a kid because she was so busy cleaning the house all the time that she missed a lot of our "little moments." She said to me just last week: "I wish I had stopped cleaning and worrying about the house so much and got to really spend time with you guys." Sometimes folks realize this too late. I'm happy you have a mom that got it from the beginning :)

Your mom sounds like a great lady. Psh, who am I kidding - it's obvious she is, because she raised you and you turned out pretty freakin' awesome.
