Here’s a touching tribute to mom that resonated with me and I hope you’ll enjoy it too.
My Mother, My Best Friend: It’s Not Too Late To Appreciate Your Mom
By Rebekah Sewell
I had a special relationship with my mom. I know tons of girls say that, but I really mean it. We had a bond closer than blood; however, we didn’t even share blood.
My mom adopted me from South Korea when I was 5 months old. She had already adopted three of my siblings when she picked me up from the airport.
This Sunday will be the third Mother’s Day I’ve spent without her, and let me tell you, the pain is still fresh.
I still remember all the little things I used to do for my mom on special holidays. I’d write her handwritten cards using pink crayons; I’d make an envelope out of construction paper and dot it with tiny hearts.
My mom was a special lady. She was a teacher, a single mom and an honest, truly good person. She didn’t lie or speak badly of others, and she always put her children first.
