I love Mother’s Day. Every year for the past few years, my mother, grandmother (Grammy) and I have gone to Harrisburg every year for the past few years for the CHAP Homeschool Convention, since it’s always been on Mother’s Day, and has been a wonderful time every year. Unfortunately, it was scheduled for a week later this year. Then again, I didn’t have a blog this time last year, so I thought I’d do something different for them this year.
You are one of the most beautiful people I know. All the time I get to spend with you is a gift. Whenever I’m with you, I’m struck by how much you ooze Christ’s love, even on those days when things are so crazy you want to pull your hair out. You’re both gentle and firm at the same time. I’m blessed to have a Meemaw like you.
Apart from Mom, you were the first person that held me. You’ve been with me and praying for me from the start, laughing with me and giving me advice for years. You’re one of the coolest grandmothers around — after all, I don’t know anyone else who has a grandmother that’ll fangirl over their favorite authors and artists with them. 😛 I know I wouldn’t be where I am as a person if it wasn’t for you; you’ve poured so much time and love into me. I will never be able to thank you enough.
Dear Mom (a.k.a. Precious),
You are amazing, the best mom ever. I am so grateful for the relationship that we have, that is so unlike the mother-daughter relationships we see everywhere else. You are my best friend. Through all the moves and upheavals, our bond has gotten so tight it’s almost hard to believe. I have no idea how either of us are going to handle my moving out. ;P Thank you for all the time you’ve spent with me and for all the jokes and the not needing to speak proper English to be understood.
I love you, Precious!
