How honored I am to be able to share 25 of those years with you. The light of my life. My moon and the stars. My balance of peace and dedication. The woman I strive to be better than but some times falls short. The listener, teacher, spokesperson, chairman. The glue, tape, and the staples. The fixer. You have all the answers and even if you don’t you’ll figure it out. My mother, my queen, my best friend.
Today the world rises and sets on you. I want to say THANK YOU for being whatever I needed you to be at any given moment. Thank you for being my therapist if needed. Thank you for molding me into the woman and mother I am today. When I’m falling short you are there to pick me up and remind me who I am and my purpose. When my life is falling apart you are there to help me fix it. When I need wine after a long day of work, you have the glass ready.
See.. My mother is my best friend but it has it’s limits. She’s the type of best friend that you can’t really do everything with her but when you need her she is always there. We talk on the phone daily, some times for hours. We laugh together, cry together, & spend a lot of time together. She is there for me in some of my worst times. She knows the real me from inside and out. She knows my heart, attitude, & abilities. When I first became a mother at the young age of 17 my mother didn’t encourage the situation but supported me. I didn’t have to be afraid to come to my mother, she actually came to me. She didn’t make me go to appointments alone, she held my hand. I didn’t have to go through labor alone, she scrubbed up, and told me everything was going to be fine. My mother taught me how to be a survivor. She taught me to remember that “Tomorrow is Tomorrow” so I never had to worry about it.
I can never pay you back for all that you do for me and my boys but I promise you when I’m able you’ll never have to work again. I hope when I’m 50 I’ll be looking half as good as you.. Happy Fabulous 50 Queen💕
