Days like today are the days I miss being with my mom more than usual.
But Mother's Day also makes me even more thankful for moms and especially my mom.
I see myself as a good kid, but I also know there were times I was flat out mean to my mom. As I get older, it's because I see we're so much alike. And also as I get older, I'm even more thankful for the times where I know it was hard to be my mom.
Thanks for being the best mom when I know it was hard to be my mom like...
Not getting me what I wanted even when I thought and begged I needed it
Watching me go through heartbreaks and just wanting to make it better but letting me heal on my own
Helping me move hours away when you really don't want to see me go but cheering me own through the whole process
Listening to me rant about how hard life can be, telling me what might be best, telling me it'll be okay then stepping back and letting me figure it out
Telling me I'm overreacting, being dramatic or being ridiculous when I really don't want to hear it
Knowing I'm going to make a mistake but letting it happen because I'll grow from it
So thank you mom (and moms everywhere) for doing your best when it was hard to be mom because those moments are the moments I know made me a better me.
