A Tribute to Mom
My mom and I didn't always see eye to eye when I was young,
I frequently was lashed at by her tongue.
We went round and round, but thankfully niether of us ended up in the ground.
As I grew older, we became close and leaned on one another's shoulder.
We were friends and frequently traded grins.
We laughed, we cried, we were bona fide.
The time came for me to move on but our relationship continued to be strong.
We talked on the phone several times a day, even if it was just to say "hey".
Then life took over and our talks became sporadic. The drastic change was quiet dramatic.
And then, over night, I had a family. The challenges proved, yet again, that she was there for me. Nana became her name and she has been anything but lame.
Life has shown us what we are made of.
And we all know that the strength we have came from above.
She is a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a wife, a mother, a Nana, a Christian, a hard worker, a generous giver, and an amazing human being. Now that you've seen who she is and the kind of life she has led, NO, YOU CAN'T HAVE HER, SHE'S OUR PUP HEAD!
*We love you Nana Net and we know how blessed we are to have you in our lives. Have a great day and know that we feel this way about you EVERY day.
