Happy Mother’s Day… a tribute to my Mama!

IMAGE_670Gosh, where do I start! My mom is one of the most amazing and influential people you’ll ever meet – hands down. She is the reason for it all. She not only raised all of us to be the best we could be, but she has always been supportive, giving and loving in everything we’ve done.

She has taught us to be a strong independent women and to never give up on our dreams. She has taught us to stand on our own two feet and support ourselves. At an early age – she instilled in us the importance of working hard and never giving up.  She’s always pushing us to do better, only because she knows what we have to offer. She can read us like no one else (which is sometimes scary!).

She is one of the most positive people you’ll ever meet. She’s adored by all. She’s a giver and a lover. She’s happy, fun and full of life (even if you’re getting old, ma!). She is an incredible wife, mother, and grandmother.

Life hasn’t always been easy for her, but she’s a pro at making the best out of hard situations. She has taught us so much about life, love and everything in between. Her strength and support has reassured us that we can do or be anything.  She raised my sisters and I to be happy, confident, loving and successful women – but to never forget the simple things in life… the most important things.

IMAGE_509There are five things she consistently reminds us of: 1) At the end of the day family is all that matters. Family will always be there for you, regardless of the situation. 2) Be Happy. Enjoy your life and always know that you are blessed. 3) Love. All there is is love. Be love, give love and have love. 4) When times get tough, count your blessings and make the most of it because life is short. Enjoy it all, good or bad. 5) You deserve the very best. Take chances and follow your heart. Always.

My mom is our rock, our strength and our best friend. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us. You are the reason for it all. We love you!
