Mothers

This morning M’s mother passed away after a very long and tough battle with cancer. She was a wonderful woman and she will be missed very much by all that knew her. I just want to take a few minutes to name a handful of the small things that I love (and can often be taken for granted) about  my mom.

1: Her purse is like The Big Comfy Couch (Don’t know what I am talking about? Google it, trust me, I am right about this)  Need a pen? Mom’s got one! In need of some tissue? No worries.  The hemn of your skirt came undone? Oh look, Mom has a pocket sewing kit in her bag of tricks, imagine that!

2: The way her house always smells like cinnamon sugar, Mr.Clean or the soup she used to make you whenever you were sick as a child.

3: When I was 17 and was trying to dress “sexy” she wasn’t afraid to tell me that I am not Nicole Kidman and this is not Moulin Rouge.

4: She always apologizes after an argument, no matter how small or insignificant it was, and even if it was me who was in the wrong.

5: Her oh-so-lame and cheesy jokes, half the time I am laughing at how corny they are, not because they are funny.

“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.  A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”   ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
