She never missed a dance recital, band concert, or baseball game. She let me tag along to garage sales, got me tetherball for the backyard when I was obsessed, and redecorated my room in lavender one day while I was at school. She’s the first person I called each time I was pregnant, and every time my kids do something epic. She is my mom, the woman who helped my life and still continues to do so.

She Is My Mom
She planned themed birthday parties each year, was the leader of my Girl Scout troop and Odyssey of the Mind group. She was our biggest cheerleader, homeworker helper, and hamburger cheese dip extraordinaire. She is my mom, and she’s taught me so many life lessons.
She rarely spent money on herself, hardly ever missed work, and didn’t yell often. She never put us down, barely had time for herself, and didn’t complain around us much. She worked hard, had fun on the weekends, and made sure we experienced life even if it was always by car. She is my mom, and I can only hope to be half of what she is.
My mom has taught me a lot about being a mother and woman over the years. She’s shown me that working hard and having fun is a balance, but one that is possible to achieve. It’s hard to find a work-life balance and also take care of ourselves but moms do it best.
