i got her a card, a set of colorful pearl studs, and a gift card to get her fave shoes, & we spent quality time.
i love my mom, well obviously, & today inspired me to share
she is my best friend hands down, this happened with age, ive always been exremly close to my mom, but when i was a teenager i was never around (we didnt argue or anything, i just was never around to be close you know) i naively thought other things were more important at the time, around 17 that changed i settled down with my man and found the time to have a relationship with my mom, it was the best thing i couldve done! shes honest and always gives it to me straight and i appriciate everything she has done and given to me in my life, we love to get together shop, talk about life, and get a bite to eat (plus i love having dinner with her cause she makes the best pasta & bread)
i get my nurturing heart from her, she is the mother of 2 daughters a 35 yr old (my sister) and a 20 yr old (me) shes been a nurse for 33 years & plans to work till retirement, she has seen and done it all, she has the greatest life stories to tell & id be lost without her, shes the only parent i have left (my dad passed 7/2/05 & having her in my life to go to about anything, its a great feeling.
