I mean, it’s so true. And while I love most of the things I got from my momma… there are certainly some other things as I get older that I don’t love getting from my momma, but there is not a thing I can do about that, besides laugh and shake my head.
But beyond that, the one thing I love the most that I got from my momma is a best friend. Looking back, especially to high school although we were close there was definitely a portion of time that seemed like constant arguments and disagreements. And now, she still drives me a bit crazy but I understand it comes from a place of love … and that she just can’t help herself! But she is still the person I call almost every day on my way home from work, who I text with my latest rants, random questions just about anything, and we have a great time together.
Now that it’s official and my FMIL is now my MIL – I look forward to becoming closer with her. We have always had a good relationship, similar interests and style not to mention good laughs. And, she raised the man of my dreams, my best friend and my life partner – how cool is that? I am so lucky to have another caring, genuine, boss woman in my life that I can officially call family.
As the years go on, this day’s meaning changes a bit – as I start to have more mother’s in my life, from my aunts who’ve been my mom’s away from home since I moved, to my friends who are becoming mom’s, my fellow dog mom’s, adopted grandparents and now gaining another official mom this past winter.
Happy Mother’s Day!
