Happy Mother's Day, Mama!!!
I am so blessed to have a beautiful, loving, fun, Christian, giving, all-around wonderful Mama!! It has not been easy living so far from my Mama and Papa. In fact, we went FOUR months without seeing them!! A phone call is just not the same. My mother is one of the best bridge players in Raleigh, NC. She makes the best Sunday dinners in the whole world. Just like her Mama, she cooks dish after wonderful dish and we indulge ourselves happily when she does. She is very funny. How many mamas do you know that will shock a whole elite tour group in Miami by dressing in an all-white suit with a Donatella Versace long blonde wig? No one even knew who this stranger was when she entered the bus! Mama has such a great sense of humor. When we are together, we laugh and laugh and laugh. She has so many friends and has wonderful parties. She has always made me be a better person and sacrificed much for my behalf. Yet, she always communicated to me that all I had to do was my best, and if my best produced a C or D, that was okay. My competitive personality needed to hear that. I am very hard on myself and needed to know it's OKAY not to be perfect. Mama, I am thankful for you & I love you so much!! I feel blessed to be able to celebrate this day with you & hope we can celebrate together for many, many more years!!! I LOVE YOU.
