This is my dear, sweet Mama. Yesterday we ran around all day and then I had choir rehearsal last night at church. She came along and watched Lizzie (playing in the background). She was exhausted apparently, because she was sleeping mostly.
My mom has a heart of gold. She can not stand to see anyone hurting or in need. If she has any means to help them, she will. I worry about her sometimes because there are people that figure this out about her and take advantage of it. I also admire her a great deal. She and my dad's divorce will be final this month after a few years of separation. They were married almost 44 years. She has had a lot of emotional ups and downs over the years, but she always lands with her feet on the ground and keeps moving forward. I know she will this time as well.
When I was growing up, it was this lady that instilled in my that I had value. When my dad picked on me and put me down, she always came in a picked up the pieces. I always felt safe wrapped in her arms, and I still do today. She always helped me to follow my dreams and taught me that I could do anything I desired. I am very grateful that she believed in me at times when I did not believe in myself. After all, isn't that what mamas are for?
I love my mom!!!
