I have always felt extremely lucky with the mom that God gave me. She gently helped guide me through rocky teenage years, she never put too much pressure on me in anything, but rather encouraged me to live up to my potential, and even though I didn’t like it sometimes, she challenged me to stretch out of my so-loved comfort bubble. As I get older, I know more and more how lucky I have been to have her as my mom. We get to do fun things together now, like go shopping and out to lunch and just talk. We’re not only Mother-Daughter, but friends too, and that feels awesome. I love you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!
