Growing up, I didn't really appreciate you. You worked hard, did your best, but all I saw was your flaws. Though on the outside I looked like a good daughter, inside I had such a rebellious heart. Of course our family had its ups and downs, and we had our fair share of "dysfunction." But what family doesn't?
Over the years, as I grew older and became a wife and mother, I soon began to look at you with a new set of eyes.
I saw your faithfulness.
Your hard work.
And your love.
The thing is-- through thick and thin, good times and bad,
you have always been there for me.
We may not always agree. We may have our differences.
But you have taught me to keep going.
You support me.
You laugh with me.
You bless me.
Today I say Happy Mother's Day.... a few days early....
because you mean the world to me.
If it was up to me, you would have a day all your own!
I love you Mom!
