What My Mother Taught Me

"Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible." ~Marion C. Garretty

These past five days have been a whirlwind, the best kind there is. Though I couldn't have accomplished it without the one woman who I'm proud to call Mama.

She's taught me to reach beyond the stars.
To dream
To be kind
To be humble
To lend a helping hand
To speak kind words
To work hard
To do the impossible.

She said I could do anything I set my mind to.
She lit the path to manifest my dreams.
She showed me the way when doubt silently crept in the corners of my mind.

She showed me how to love unconditionally.
She lead by example.

She lifted me up, when I couldn't stand.

She's my mother, my rock, the reason I am.
