Thank you Mom! Parker IM

My mom and I use to be really close. When I became a mom we were able to relate to one another and we had a lot of fun together. These days, not so much. I find we do not know how to communicate. We get overly sensitive to what the other says. We fight over absolutely nothing. We even go for weeks without talking.  I know it is just a faze We are both busy and we both have lots of stress in our lives. No matter what she is my mom and I will always love her. I will always be thankful for the opportunities she supported me through. The challenges I brought to her and the support we have given each other when we really needed it. 

If nothing else, my mom taught me how to be a great mom. I learned from her mistakes. I followed her accomplishments and I raised some great kids. Because of this, this Mothers Day. I want to say, Thank you Mom!
