It has been a few days since I last made contact. I just want to say moms are pretty cool. My mom is incredible. This woman has endured two highly opinionated children, one accident prone husband, and you know what, she is still smiling. She is the great equalizer, she has the ability to balance the chaos and keep the three of us out of jail, well at least one of us, I won't name any names but those people know who they are. I am amazed still to this day and I wonder will I be able to do the same?
Being a mom is a job, it is a pleasure, it is an adventure. Of course this is only a short list of what moms are and can be, but I never thought in my wildest dreams I would ever be a mom to human beings. Cats, sure, birds, yeaup, dogs, absolutely, but actual human children, what a shocker.
My friend's daughter just celebrated her 2nd birthday, and I got a chance to spend time with moms. I am humbled by moms, my friends are spectacular women. They move with grace, poise, and gentility. Their children are a pleasure to spend time and I hope to be half the mom they are.
I recently spent some one on one time with my mom. I took her to a movie and realized just how lucky I am still lives so close to me. It is strange how the relationship changes to allow for the child and the adult to be friends. She is still the MOM, and I assure you, I am in trouble more often than I can count in one week, she notifies me immediately. My mom can do a lot of cool things, she can write poetry, she can draw, she can wrestle (well only with her grandkids), she can use a computer now. I love my mom.
