i had the best days with you

Delayed mother's day post...sorry everybody.

I love my mom, she's an amazing woman, certainly someone whom I look up to everyday. She's has done a great job of bringing me up and I can only hope that one day I will be as good of a mother as she is.  

Sometimes looking back on  my 17 and a half years I get really sad for I've spent so much time trying to be independent and grow up, and all those times that I could of spent with my mom are gone.

Sometimes, all a girl needs is her mom.

You were there when I took my first steps, 
And went unsteadily across the floor. 
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided, 
Until my steps took me out the door... 
You worry now "Is she ok?" 
Is there more you could have done? 
As I walk the paths of my unknown 
You wonder "Where has my child gone?" 
Where I am is where you have led me, 
With your special love you showed me a way, 
To believe in myself and the decisions I make. 
Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day. 
And where I go you can be sure, 
In spirit you shall never be alone. 
For where you are is what matters most to me,
Because to me that will always be home...

That's beautiful. I love that you love your mom. I have a shaky relationship with mine, but I definitely love her too.
