I Finally Get it MOM

January 13, 2015|Posted in: Self

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted…I’ve been blessed with being able to bring a second child in this world, and this pregnancy has been the most difficult thing I’ve had to endure.  I’m now on the up and up, and thought it was time to share a little something near and dear to my heart…a little bit about my mom.

I just got through watching this fabulously motivating speech by wrestler Marc Mero.  You are first taken aback by his tough look, but then as he continues to captivate you through his words…you start to relate to exactly what he is saying.  He started talking about one of the biggest influencers in his life, and brings a class of middle school students to tears.  I mean, who can do that?  Well, this guy can.

He brings up his experiences about slamming the door in his mom’s face, when she is the only one who believed in him…. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done that to my mom, and today looking back would take that back in a heartbeat.

He lost his mom way too young… and you know what?  So did I.   I lost my mom way too young.  I never got to experience my wedding day…my bridal shower….my baccalaureate party….my first born….my first home purchase….nor this most difficult pregnancy ever with my mom.  There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think, talk, or wish that my mom was physically here with me.   I know she’s in a better place not suffering anymore, and looking over me.  But there are sometimes I just long to be with her.   Being a parent now, I get it. I get why my mom made particular choices for me in my life.  I get why she didn’t want me hanging around certain people.  I get why sometimes she wanted me to stay home and not go out with my friends “because she said so”.

Marc so eloquently brings up this point and more… he finally get’s it….and now… I FINALLY GET IT MOM.  I MISS YOU. I LOVE YOU.  YOU WERE/ARE THE BEST MOM I COULD HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH.
