M is for... Mom

Today M is for Mom.  It seems a simple word.  I am just so fortunate to be so close to my own mom.  When I was a kid, I was a daddy's girl all the way... but as I grew older, though I retained my close relationship with my dad, I really did grow a lot closer to my mother.  Now, I am able to go to her with anything.  She and I have a very open, adult relationship and I understand what it means for mothers and daughters to become friends.  I love how much we laugh together, how she comes to me for help and support just as I can always go to her.  I just love my mom, and appreciate her in my life very much!  I hope to one day be the mom she was to me for my own kids, and I hope I can develop the same strong relationship with my future children that she has with hers.  Love you, momma.


  1. I certainly am jealous of the relationship you have with your Mom. I hope that one day I can have that closeness with my daughter and my son!

  2. This would be for my momma too who is 94 now but still my best friend and one I run to.

  3. I was the same when I was younger. I have grown a lot closer to my mother now, especially when my dad passed and she has been ill with dementia. Our parents are so precious, thanks for sharing. I have listed your blog in my post today.

  4. I've always been close to my mom and wish I could see her more often. Wonderful to see that you have such a beautiful relationship with yours.

  5. I would be completely lost without MY mom. New follower here. I'm stopping by from the "A to Z" challenge and I look forward to visiting again.


  6. My mom and I aren't close as far as me going to her for advice or her complimenting me on anything or anything that close mothers and daughters do. I try to call her several times a week as a respectful daughter. She was never a lovey dovey mom. I, on the other hand, have a major mama's boy and another boy who doesn't consider himself a mama's boy but he shows signs of it sometimes. I love my boys to death and hope to continue a closer relationship with them (without suffocating them or being a monster-in-law.
