How does she do it?

Sometimes I wish I was witty, funny, and a better writer. I feel like I have nothing to write about, but there is SO much going on in my life. Why is that? I would rather write about good things than complain about what's going on with me you know? However, I'm gonna go out on a limb...I'm gonna completely put myself at there through this post b/c I really want to express how incredible my mom is. This year (starting in January) has not been the absolute best year of my life. I recognize that I have truly been blessed however, it's been a test for me. I have gone from daily breakdowns to weekly breakdowns which is def an accomplishment. All the while my mother has been there to pick up the pieces, put them back together and somehow put a smile on my face....how does she do that? I have no idea what I did/doing/will do to deserve her, but I fully accept and love that I was blessed to have her as my mother. I know that those of you who are reading this are thinking to yourselves how much you appreciate, love, and are grateful for your mothers too. More power to us! I don't think our mothers get enough recognition, and that in itself is sad to me. They are one of the most influential people in our lives, yet sometimes I feel I take her for granted and I apologize. Mom, I love you and I'm so eternally grateful for your strength, your support, your keen intellect, and your wonderful heart. When I grow up, I want to be exactly, to the "T" like you.

So sweet, I hope your mom blushed. Mom's are the best. And you can complain an-y-time! Blogs aren't just sunshine and rainbows you know!
