25 Days to be Thankful | Day 2

This is my 100th post.  What a milestone.  And for this 100th post, my 2nd day of what I am thankful for.

Today (and everyday really, even though I may not say it), I am thankful for my mother.  A couple posts ago I mentioned how grateful I am to have her in my life.  But words can really not express how grateful I am.  She has been such a beacon of inspiration.  Her motivation and drive push me to become a better person.  I only wish that I am half the mother that she has been to me.

She is funny and quirky and since I have matured a bit in the last several years, we definitely get along swimmingly.  Ü  I have been told numerous times that we look like sisters and people think I am her when I answer the phone.  I have no problem with this.  She is my mother and she is amazing.

In high school she would try to embarrass me by acting like a fool in front of my friends.  Unfortunately it would back fire and I would act up back.  I think I pissed her off more by not getting upset!  Hahaha!!  All the band kids loved her and I never once felt her support decrease. 

My mother is crafty and one of the thriftiest people I know - especially when it comes to coupons.  She's the only person I know that can go to Publix and spend one tenth of what is actually owed.  I swear, it's a gift.  She's taught me so many things.  Words can not describe how much she means to me. 

I love you, mommy.
