My mother showed up for everything I ever did.
Every play. Every assembly. Every concert. Every student council speech. Every soccer game. Every Miss Mayfair pageant.
Every. Single. Thing.
I think I thanked her in eye rolls. And told her that no one else’s mom was there and was she sure she had time and did she really need to be there and I would be fine if she didn’t make it.
But she never listened.
Instead, when I opened the curtain or walked into the room or lined up on the field, she would be there in the front row with a camera and a big smile on her face listening to every word or note or paragraph or recitation…..
….never ever missing a thing.
I never really understood why.
Until I became a mom.
And now I’m the one on the front row of baseball games and cheerleading events and basketball games and assemblies and concerts, spending last night covered in pink and green and blue and yellow dust from the Relay For Life Color Run dancing the Electric Slide with my daughters.
So to my four children….I love you and I’m on the front row and remember….
….I’m fluent in eye roll. 🙂
Love the styling.
