The Daily Prompt for today is “Last But Not Least“:
In my imaginary awards acceptance speech, the very end would be “Last, and most importantly, I want to thank my mother”.
In truth, I have no idea what I would do without this woman. She is my biggest fan and supporter on so many levels, and she is my number one role model. My mom had children at a young age (17 & 19), she (along with my father) scraped up every penny they had and they made everything work. When I was young, we may not have had everything we wanted, but we had everything we needed – and that’s what matters. She took my cousin (someone I see as my little sister) in when her parents died (my mom’s brother and sister-in-law), and treated her as if she was her child – I don’t think many people are capable of doing that. She has always been a friend to me, but my mother first and foremost.
She is my hero and my role model, and I will say that until the day I die. I have always been, and always will be, a mommy’s girl.
