You are my giddy laughter
You are the warm sun and the light breeze
You are my big, bright smile
You are the music in my soul
You are “My Sunshine, My only Sunshine”
You are a tight hug on a bad day
You are encouragement to be better
You are the push to be more
You are all “thank you”s and “please”s
You are my belief
You are the back rub that says, “Everything will be okay”
You are my tenderness
You are my love for animals
You are car chanting, “CRA-ZY, CRA-ZY!”
You are the catcher of my tears
You are the paint on my canvas
You are the drawing on my walls
You are silly, made-up words
You are my creative
You are the tickle-monster
You are the walks to the park
You are my stay up late, and care for others
You are my never-give-up
You are the smile in my heart
You are my inspiration
You are my hero
YOU are everything I am.
I am everything YOU are.
Mom, YOU are my “happy dance”
Today is my mom’s birthday, so, naturally, I needed to post about the most influential human in my life.
At a very young age, my mother brought sunshine to mine and my siblings’ lives. From dancing to disney music to craft making and playing at the park, my mom was a super mom to ANY kid!
All the kids in the neighborhood knew it too! She would always open her heart for any child.
She is always the warm hug you need in a sad moment and a guiding hand when you need a pick-me-up.
More than that, she always “happy dances” when we accomplish anything big in her mind! Always praising, always loving, always encouraging.
My mom has been, to this day, the best mom any kid could ever receive. I lucked out! So on this day, and every day, I am privileged to be your daughter, to be created by all of your love.
I love you, mom.
