5 Reasons My Mom is Awesome
(me, Mom, Grandma)
2. She is a great cook. It's easy to see where I got my love of cooking from! My mom and I share recipes all the time. She likes healthy, flavor filled food - and everything she cooks is awesome!
3. She is living the dream. Seriously - my parents retired, sold their house, bought an RV, and drove off into the sunset. They're hiking and biking and kayaking and seeing all kinds of amazing places. I love that they value these experiences and staying active!
4. She is a cleaning machine. I definitely did not inherit my mom's love of being neat. No matter how many times I scrub my bathtub, it is never as shiny as when my mom comes and cleans. And yes, I am 32 years old and my mom still cleans my house when she visits. I don't force her to - but I don't turn it down either!!
5. She still cries when I leave. Whenever I visit, as we drive to the airport, my mom cries. We really are best friends, and it makes me feel so very loved that even in my 30s, I am still my parents' little girl!
Thanks, Mom, for putting up with me. I know I was not an easy kid - and probably am still not!! Thank you for dealing with my stubbornness, my independence, my moods, my messiness, and everything else. It takes a strong woman to have spent all of those years raising me!!! LOVE YOU!!!!
