A Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom
- My mom is the only person I know who lives to make everyone around her happy. She loves her family and friends more than one could think possible. She is the reason I am married to the man of my dreams – if it were not for her belief in true love and fate, I don’t think I would have ever moved to Tennessee to be with him.
- She is my biggest fan – always encouraging me to go after my dreams. She is the reason I want to be successful in life, so she knows that all of her hard work and support is appreciated.
- She is the hardest worker I know (my Daddy too). Without going too much into my mom’s private personal past, she has always been one to try to support her family (her brothers and sisters included), as well as give her children and husband everything under the sun.
- She teaches me to appreciate the beauty in life and the small things that can make you smile. She is the only person I know who loves nature and wildlife as much as she does. (I know I make fun of you for getting excited everytime you see a hawk, Mom, but I do it because I loves you).
- She is protective in a good way. She has taught me that we must always look out for our family and friend’s safety. My mom is nurturing, loving, friendly, so so outgoing and welcoming to everyone…but don’t cross her…ever. She is filled with what she says is strong Italian blood that makes her naturally threatening to those that may hurt her loved ones =0) Just ask Mr. Bear about the letter she wrote him before the first time I visited him in Tennessee. She let him know what would happen if I came home crying…I love you for that Momma.
- She loves to laugh. She loves to have a good time. She loves to dance. She loves to sing (even though she is a bit off-key, and I can say that because I am too). She is the life of the party – someone you usually want around in the crowd because she always makes sure everyone has a good time.
- She taught me to cook. She taught me to appreciate food. We ask each other every day what’s for dinner without even thinking. She taught me the importance of making sure your family is fed … because a full belly makes a full heart and a happy person.
- A few more photographic moments of why my Mom is the best Mom ever:
