To my momma
My mom is my best friend. I am daddy's little girl but I am also mommy's little girl too. Even though I am almost 30 I still call my parents mommy and daddy. I am an only child and adopted. I guess you can say I am spoiled. My parents tried for me for many years then one day was blessed with me! It's funny even though I am adopted I look at act like my family. A lot of people say I look like my dad. They also say that I look and act like my Aunt (my moms sister) My papaw swore that my aunt went off and had me for mom and dad but she promises she didn't! LOL
So tomorrow my momma is going in for one of her three or four surgeries she will have over the next few months. Tomorrow her first surgery will be on her back. It will be rough for her. She has a disease called Fibromyalgia. My momma is the rock of our family. There is only one other time she got really sick like this. I was still in high school, I was only a freshman I believe. The doctors actually brought her back to life twice. With being older and having my own family and not living near her it is hard. I am trying to take over while she has been down. She needs to hurry and recover because her two grandsons are ready to play play play with their mamaw!
Both of my parents are very close to my boys. I think my oldest Brayden and my mom are soul mates. He knows when mom says no to go to mamaw and he will get his way. He was the only one we had for six years! :) He knows how to work mamaw! LOL
So mommy as you go into your first surgery tomorrow daddy and I will be right by your side. We will be there to hold your hand and kiss you as they wheel you off. We will be the first ones there when you wake up to tell you how great you did. I know your recovery will be hard but you have daddy and I to help you all the way. It will be tough at times and you will get frustrated with us but it's only because we all love each other. Remember growing up you always said it was "daddy, mommy, and me" now it has grown to us three plus Todd, bub, and monkey. We all will be there for you through everything. Know that you are loved so much and you are our rock that holds our family together. I still need you to teach me how to be that rock one of these days. I just hope that I can be as good as mommy to my boys as you were to me. I am the lucky one that got to be your daughter. You taught me how to be strong growing up, how to let Christ into my heart, how to be a wife, and a good mommy. You are the most unselfish person I know. You are my idol mommy. I love that I get to start my mornings talking to you on the phone and end my evenings telling you good night over the phone. Hopefully one day we will live close to each other again. When I go to bed tonight I will say an extra prayer that you will be okay and do so well tomorrow.
I love you mommy,
Love your little girl
