|Me, Mom & Little Sis last Mother's Day|
I thought I'd mention my mom a little in one of these. Since she was/is such a big part of my life and how I became the woman I am.
My mother was a stay at home mom, for me, until she and my father got a divorce - I was 9 and my sister was (approx) 6 months old. She then picked her emotional and heartbroken self up and did her best to support two children and be there for her own recently-widowed mother.
She worked whatever job she could - dishwasher, waitress, cashier at Walmart - all the while taking herself back to school. Eventually she made her way up to be a manager for Hilton. She never settled for less than all she could. And she made sure us girls knew it too.
|Momma and Me|
When it came time for me to graduate high school and pick a college. She told me not to worry about the cost; we'd find a way. And even though she put herself thousands of dollars in debt to help me pay for school with loans - she made sure I went to the school of my dreams.
No matter what life throws at her she does her best to conquer the world and she's instilled this into me as well. I love her with all my heart. My mother and my friend.
