The best thing about ME......

The other night my mom mentioned over dinner that I blog about my dad quite often, and she wondered if I had noticed that I never blog about her.  Stunned....my mind started reeling.  I hadn't noticed... and it took me a bit to respond.    Being that my parents are divorced, I was filled with a sharp pang of embarrassment.  Suddenly, I felt like I was 7 years old... ashamed for having shown unintentional favor to one of my parents.  I thought about why I would have been so silent about her, as she is a HUGE part of my life.  Even as I write this, I'm sure of the answer.   My mom is very private.  She is my best friend and I know her inside and out.  She is shy, and brilliant.  My whole life she has been an example of unwavering integrity and courage.  She has been the ultimate woman in my eyes.  I've never been sure if she would even want me to write about her.  If she hadn't mentioned it, I would have assumed she was positively relieved not be the subject of my badly written blog.  In fact..she probably wishes she kept her mouth zipped about it now.
My little Haven is my mom reincarnate, with my husbands eyes, and my good hair : ).  She is curious, smart and shy.  They are the best of friends, and I love her with the same heart as I do my Mother and they are two of the BEST thing about ME.
To the mother that God blessed me to have and the daughter that made me a mother, I say Thank you and Happy Mothers Day.
