Why is your mother awesome?

    Why is your mother awesome?

    What makes her special? What makes her the best mom you know?

    Because she just is!.

    Whilst her marriage to my father did not work out (whew, now I look back on it!), she strove to make sure we had a good relationship with our father, and we still do - even 26yrs later.  She strove to provide what she could for us as a solo mother, forgoing things at time so we would have what we needed.

    Her choice in my step-father was perfect, and she has a great man in him - I am lucky enough to have two men I consider "fathers" - one biological, one not.

    Whilst she did not quite understand it initially - she accepts and loves both me and my same sex wife - supporting us wholeheartedly, and loving us unconditionally. My wife has been part of the family since the beginning - receiving the look only a mother can give when one is being cheeky - and feels very comfortable with my family - something I thank all of my parents for.

    In a recent turn of events, she has both supported me and understood where I was at - not trying to change what I felt, but being there all the same. We are trying to conceive using a Fertility Clinic - my mother is excited about being a Granny, and supportive all the way.  Recently, she shared our excitement when we got "two lines" on our at home pregnancy test.  She also shared our lows when I miscarried at six weeks - sharing with me the stories of the children conceived between me and my sister - stories I knew and have known all my life, but did not understand in the same way I do know.  She understood my tears and hurt, and admitted being unable to change things if only she could.

    I appreciate her honesty, integrity and her unconditional love.
    Of course, I also love her for her stubbornness, and stroppiness also - I know where I got it from!. After all, this is a the woman who told me when I really didn't want to visit a slightly dodgy friend - "Just tell her your mother is a b***h, and won't let you." to help me save face...and grinned while I actually did say that over the phone!
    Love ya mum!

    She is awesome because I think she loves and cares me the most. She is ready to do anything for me.

    my mom is good at cooking nyonya food. She kept us healthy, strong and always protect us from any harm. She is just like the mother hen covering up her little chicks with her wings.

    My mom is a total goofball, just like me, there is never a dull moment when I am around her.  She makes up little catch phrases and words like goober knuckle, and calls me her blippty-boo, lol. She is such a kidder and extremely sweet, she means the world to me.

      - my mom too!  She used to bring crackers and beer to the Murphy bed where I slept and sing me sad songs about World War II and recite "If" to me by heart and Longfellow's "The Villiage Blacksmith".  She never turned away from anyone in need.

    My mother is the best for me in many ways, she always advised me correctly and put me on a pedestal no matter what, in many cases mothers know best.  A woman of pride who loves her children and would help out at anytime she shows love and care at all times

    My Mom faced the worst that can happen in a person's life and thrived.  She faced challenges up to the last moment of her life with more courage than I've ever seen in another person.  Seeing her to that, tells me I can do more than I thhink I can.  That's awesome.
