I love my Mom!

My mom truly is the greatest. I know everyone says that about their mothers, but I really mean it!

She has done so much for me and continues to be there for me no matter what I am going through. She is a strength to me when I'm down and have no where else to go. She can always cheer me up and get my mind off of whatever is bother me. My mom is the one person on Earth who understands how hard on me my health issues really are. She has been by my side through every bit of it. She has nursed me through several surgeries, ER visits, and pass out spells. I know that watching me go through it has never been easy on her, but no matter how scary it gets for her she never stops taking care of me. In order to pay my medical bills my mom has had to declare bankruptcy twice, but she never made me feel like it was my fault. She just lovingly took care of what needed taking care of. I love her so much for that.

My mom is SUPER fun! I have so many memories of laughter and joy with her. All I have to do is think of one and I start laughing all over again. She is known for turning the simplest things into hilarious moments. If you know her then you know what I'm talking about. If not then you just need to meet her because describing how she does this is hard even for this wannabe writer. She just has a way about her that makes people feel good and generates laughter.

One thing my mom doesn't realize is that she is a great example to me. I have watched her struggle through extremely difficult things and always come out on top. I've watched her get laid off job after job, but push through anyway. After getting laid off once again from a job she really enjoyed, I watched my mom go back to school for a field she'd never worked in before. She studied harder than anyone there, graduated sooner than everyone, and quickly found a job working in that field. Now she teaches the very classes she sat in only a few short years ago. That takes guts! I've watched my mom deal with a number of life challenges dealing with finances, relationships, health, family, etc. I know she doesn't enjoy it, I know she hates the trials  life has thrown her way...but she never gives up, she never backs down, she doesn't sit around crying about it. She gets up and she pushes forward. She moves on and finds a way to make life bearable. I look up to her so much. I look at her and know that if she can do it, so can I.

I love her so much she is more than just my mother, she is my best friend.
