Mother's Day is May 13th right?!?!?
Sooooo... I made a bit of mistake. Shhhhh... Don't tell my mom. I ordered flowers to be delivered yesterday, May 9th for Mother's Day. It was cheaper to get them delivered on Friday before the weekend and I thought it might be more of a surprise that way! Unfortunately last night when I went to look up my order to make sure they were delivered it had my delivery date set as Friday May 30th. I have no clue how that happened. I was able to get it changed but the earliest day they could be delivered is Tuesday, so Happy Mother's Day tomorrow Mom and Happy Tuesday as well.
I will call my Mom tomorrow to wish here a Happy Mother's Day and she will find out then about my mistake. Actually she will read this before then so she will have a heads up when we talk! Either way my Mom will forgive me I am sure of that.
My Mom is one of the biggest influences in my life. I would not have the skills and interests I have if it wasn't for her. I am computer savvy and that is because she had me take classes at the community college while I was in high school. My love of writing also comes from her. She helped me to develop my writing skills while I was in high school by critiquing my papers because her Master's Degree is in English. In fact I am sure she is critiquing this post as she reads it and I wouldn't have it any other way.
She has always supported me in every decision I have made and allowed me to follow my own path. When life has thrown me curve balls she has been there to help me through the hard times. I can always count on her for advice when I call and a warm hug when I see her!
My favorite memory of my Mom is a Christmas a long time ago. I have never been able to sleep on Christmas Eve. To this day I still have a tough time falling asleep. One Christmas when I was very young I couldn't sleep. I kept wanting to get up and go look to see if Santa had come. My mom stayed up with me in my room and read as I tried to sleep. I couldn't sleep I was so excited and worried that Santa wouldn't come. She even took me in and showed me that Santa had come and brought lots of presents. I still didn't sleep. Mom stayed up with me all night that Christmas. She read in my room with me as I laid in my bed with wide eyes waiting for 5:00 am to come or something close to that. It was the longest Christmas Eve of my life I think but looking back on it now as an adult, I don't remember at all what I got that Christmas, all I remember is my Mom staying with me all night long and honesty that was the best Christmas present I could of ever gotten!
I love you Mom, Happy Mother's Day!
