Most people who have met my mom think she’s sweet and shy. They don’t see the funky dancing she does when any beat comes on the radio, or the funny quips she throws out at just the right moment.
They wouldn’t know her amazingly unselfish heart or the way she fights like crazy for each of her children and grandchildren, researching like mad anytime there is a problem. Finding out ways we can heal ourselves or help ourselves or find ourselves. Or save ourselves.
They wouldn’t know, because she wouldn’t tell them. She just does it and, when we try to thank her, says:
“jewels in my crown! just jewels in my crown”
This is mother’s WEEK because I wanted to share this video with you, where I share a few more things my mom has done for me and meant to me. Along with some of my other friends, we share why our moms are so amazing.
Thank you mom for always being there! xoxo
