Because You Love Me

Women report all kinds of relationships with their moms: good, bad, ugly, pretty, manipulative, condemning, happy, sad.

I am blessed. I have the best mom in the whole world. I've said this before. But on Sunday, driving home from a great weekend with friends, this song came on the radio, and there I was,
crying again, thinking about how blessed I am to have the best mom in the universe.

This song sums it all up for me. Right now I am challenging myself to be a better version of myself. And I know that my mom is there for me, cheering me on. I wish I could get home more to be with her. I'm more than a little bit jealous of my siblings who live around the corner from mom and dad. So just because - not a birthday, not mother's day or a holiday - but just because I'm blessed, here is the ultimate song that reminds me how awesome, rock solid, amazing, caring and loving my mom is. And how lucky I am to have her.

Here's one for you mom. Thanks for being there for me, always. Love you.

Awww. I share my truffle fries. (WHAT? They are too mine.) Will you share your mom? :-)

How great that you have such a wonderful relationship with your mom! I can only hope that my son feels the same - you know, once he gets past these teen years where I am currently persona non grata.

That is awesome. You are awesome.
I hope your Mom reads this.
I have a feeling that YOU are much like your Mom...and one day, you will have kids thinking the same thing about you.

Aw...thanks for today's cry. I have been singing this song to Stud since he was born. It's kinda 'our song.' I'm glad someone else sees how it applies to the parent/child relationship (rather than just the 'love' song it is) When the time comes, we're going to have a very hard time choosing between this and Rod Stewart's "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?" (our other song!) as our mother/son dance at his wedding. Ok, wow, I'm getting WAY ahead of myself, aren't I? I blame YOU for making me all emotional and stuff. ;-)

Last Saturday would have been my mother's 70th birthday--and I can't believe she's been gone over 9 years.

You and your mother are lucky to have one another.
