“Someone Who Fascinates Me”
When I read this, I literally took me all day. Like my friend Joi, there are many people to choose from. Even still, I’m not really going to narrow it down to one person. It’s actually a group. The group that fascinates me is “Mothers”. I look at my mom and all that she has done and continue to do. There will never be enough paper to tell you how much my mom fascinates me. We argue, we disagree, but I know love is still the strongest force. No matter what goes on, I’ll have my mother. Then I look my sister who is a mother of 2. Every day she’s does sooooooo much to make sure her family is running smooth. She’s not only a wife, but she works, and takes my niece and nephew to their many, many events and still active in the fitness world. It always amazes me how she does it everyday!
Then I move on to the most recent of events. While preparing for the past fashion show, I got to know not only the kids in the show, but their life styles and the mothers. How they multitask two or more kids doing different events at the same time! Or even events back to back that require a back and forth. When I hear some of their schedules, it makes me tired just thinking about it. My hats off to them. I’m so proud of you all.
I also don’t want to forget the moms that step in fill roles that they don’t have to do. They either adopt or foster kids that need homes. They take custody of kids that need a better home for whatever reason. They mentor and teach kids that are not their own. It’s so much that they do that makes me admire them.
To all the moms that not only step up to the plate, but hit home runs by going above and beyond, you are special and I thank you on behalf of all those that can’t tell you. Much respect and love.
