My Mama

This is an early Mother's day post.
Because my Mom deserves a shout out before all the other Mother's because she is, without question, the best.
I've been blessed with the most wonderful lady as my Mother. I truly could not have asked for a better one. I know a lot of people say that but they just don't even know.
She's so many things to me and I'm so proud to call her mine.

I love you for many reasons Mama. Including, but not limited to, dressing me ever so stylishly as a child (see above), always being there for me when I needed you most (and even when I wouldn't admit to needing you), teaching me to always wear sunscreen, listening to me vent about things when I needed to and sometimes even venting with me, our shopping dates (it's totally your fault I thrift as much as I do), taking care of me when I'm sick, teaching me to love food, taking me to the library several times a week all growing up, always telling me I can be whatever I want to be and for being my best friend.

"You is smart, you is kind, you is important"

I love you Mama, thanks for being mine.
