huGs & kiSses-

This is the most amazing mother,
best friend, wife and woman I know

And it is also her birthday!!!!

My mom has been such a pivotal part of my life and I don't want to know what my life would be like without her. Whenever I am asked who I look up to or who I strive to be more like the first person that always come to mind is my mom.
Growing up, my mom was the one person who I aimed to impress, and was also the one person who could really discipline me and put me in my place (only when i really needed it). I really think that helped our relationship because she taught me that I need to respect her and I do more than anything! I remember a time back when I was little when my mom asked me to go find a book that I had been using and when I couldn't find it I just broke down in tears. That day I wanted SO MUCH to not disappoint my mom and I try to live my life now in a way that would not disappoint her either.
When we moved it was especially hard to be away from my mom since we would spend practically every day together. I remember when we first got to California, I kept on wondering who would I go shopping with!! My mom has been such an influence to so many lives, her piano and guitar students for one but our whole family and every one she meets!!

When I think about having children I hope I can raise them the way my mom did with us because the relationship we have is SO STRONG. It worries me that I won't be as great as my mom, I definitely have a lot to learn but I have the best teacher! They will definitely have the best "Grandma".
(when the time comes and who I'm sure will teach them some choice words) :)


I'm so happy I can be home to celebrate my mom's special day with her!! Love you mom, you are SO amazing!!!


xoxo

  3. You do have a most amazing mom who is so strong and a great example to all of us! Just cover you future kids' ears when she lets loose with those special words. She can't help it- it's in her genetics!
