I never had the greatest relationship ever told with my mom. All I can remember from my childhood was sitting outside her room studying together. I’d read a chapter and she’d ask me questions about it. She was a straight A student, so she wanted us to be so as well. All through elementary school I had the best grades in our grade. That’s one of the many things I have to thank her for. She taught me to believe in myself and my brains.
Once I started middle school I was allowed to study by myself. Good grades were still a must. I was still on the top of the class but not like in elementary school.
But this is not all I’ve learned from her. Lately I have discovered I share the same pet peeves as she does. I can’t eat breakfast in a dirty kitchen. I can’t stand clothes laying around the house. I can’t stand dirty glasses. There are things that I do that I often hear my self say “I blame my mom” for it! But I don’t say it as in putting blame on her for what I do, but I say it in a proud way. These are the things I like the most of myself. And I have to thank my mom for that.
She helped me be the person I am. She helped me be the mom that I am. And I am greatly thankful for her and all she has given me.
Mom, I love you to pieces. Sometimes it is hard for me to say those three words but I truly do love you. You are the best mom I could have ever asked for. And I am greatly thankful for making me the person I am today.
