And then, there were the times when I thought that there was no way I would ever end up like my mom. You know? I thought for sure I would be smarter and know how to handle things in a better way than she possibly could. Turns out: I was SO WRONG!!
I've always loved my mom! I just had no idea at Age 12 that I could ever understand and know her so well. Our relationship has made my love for her grow to a size that I can't ever completely or accurately express.
And now, when people say, "Oh. You look just like your mom." I say, "THANK YOU!" And when the thought crosses my mind that I might end up like my mom, I think, "I certainly hope so!"
