personal life

happy mother’s day and birthday to my mama.

my mama’s birthday always falls close to or on mother’s day every year.  i try to separate them, but they always seem to run together.  and maybe that’s not a bad thing.  it’s two important events about my mom at the same time.  it always makes me think about our relationship.  and i am so grateful to have her.

my mama was young when she had me.  she’s told me how difficult it was and also how fun.  i didn’t make it easy for her over the years.  at one point, she sought help from a book called “the strong willed child”.  i’ve always been independent and sometimes i pushed away from her.  but she was always there for me….even through my teenage years.  i grew older and matured.  i understood all of the sacrifices she made for me.  i realized that she was an amazing mother.  and she waited patently until we actually became friends when i was in my twenties.
