With Mother’s Day coming up, naturally I’m thinking about all things mom. I’m close to mine, though she lives a 10-hour drive away…I so wish she was nearer! (Or is that why our relationship is so good?) When I think of my mother, these are the things that pop into my head:
Her house is immaculate. She’s afraid of spiders and snakes. Though her cooking skills are limited (she’s just not that interested) she makes great mac ‘n’ cheese. An incredible seamstress, she made many clothes for me and for herself. In terms of entertainment, she’s an aficionado of old movies and loves to watch HGTV. To me, she passed on her love of reading, which meant she was always up for a trip to the library. And you could always count on her to go shopping for a new outfit for a special occasion.
Mom is unfazed by a messy house filled with guys and guy-stuff. She’s always willing to deliver a forgotten lunch or something else left behind. She makes great mac ‘n’ cheese…and cookies too! She’s always willing to play personal shopper for us and come home with something we need for a special occasion. Although we don’t love reading as much as she does, if we express an interest in something she’ll go all out for anything Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones.
What defines your mom? If you are a mom, what do you think your kids would say about you?
