I have always had a good relationship with my mom, of course outside of the normal teenage "I hate you, you hate me!" , "I'm doing this because I love you!" mumbo jumbo. Without explanation, that good relationship became a great relationship the moment my son was born and I became a mom myself. I am one of the lucky ones, the one that has a wonderful family and I cherish every relationship I have with each and every one of them. But my mom, there is something special about the relationship I have with her that I don't share with anyone else. My mom is my best friend, she is the one that I go to with anything and everything. She is the most influential person in my life. period. In my mom's eyes, and rightfully so, I will always be the little blonde hair girl with the little curls at the ends, the inncocent child in love with the smell of her mother's perfume, the little girl who always turns to her mom when she is sad because she knows, mom is ALWAYS there.
Without my mom, I would not know right from wrong. I would not know that the beauty of a person lies within. I would not know what love is. I would not know that Faith will always get you through. I would not be the mom I am to my son without the love and words of encouragement from her. There is absolutely nothing I would change about my relationship with my mom. The love, respect, trust, and bond that we share will never be changed.
