And Even Though I Act Crazy!

My mom and my daughter

And even though I act crazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real

And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me

- Tupac Shakur - "Dear Mama"

My great-grandmother turned 100 this week, so I'll be hitting the road this afternoon to see her and the rest of my family for a big celebration tomorrow. That also means I'll be back on the road again Sunday driving back home and I already know I'll be too tired to post.

With that being said, Happy Mother's Day to all you awesome mothers out there!!!! As a mother, I know the extreme sacrifices that have to be made to ensure the overall happiness and well-being of our children. I am so blessed to have a wonderful mother who did everything in her power to make me the happy and successful woman that I am today. She also spent most of her time doing it as a single mother, so I am super appreciative of everything she has done for me. As a single mother myself who receives no support whatsoever, I now understand and appreciate the sacrifices she made for me and my siblings. I only have to do it with one child, but she raised three! I wouldn't be where I am today without her, so this post is in dedication to her and all the other mothers out there who put it down everyday without any complaints. You all deserve to be recognized for all of your efforts and hard work.

I can't leave without posting two of my favorite songs about mothers. I hope listening to them makes you want to call/visit your mother and tell her how much you appreciate her. I also had the chance to meet Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, a few years back. She really is a phenomenal woman. Wishing everyone an amazing weekend!
