My Biggest Fan
My mom is my biggest fan. She subscribes to the synagogue newsletter just to read my columns. She loves what I write in this blog and always tells me so. She didn't even get upset when she read that I sat on some guy's lap in the front seat of a sports car (read: A Heart Stopping Moment). She reminded me that she was young once too.
She is my biggest fan when it comes to how I live my life. She once questioned my decision to be a working mom with young kids at home. She doesn't do that anymore. Instead, she tells me how proud she is of me and marvels at what I have accomplished. When I tell her how tired I am and how much I still have to do, she tells me not to worry and reminds me that tomorrow is another day.
She is my biggest fan when I've had a tough week - like this past week. When I call her up on the phone, she is such a good listener. When I'm done, she reminds me that I am a good person and that everything will be okay.
This Mother's Day, I want to tell her that I am her biggest fan. But, don't worry Mom - I'll still get you a present. :)
