I Hit the Jackpot!

I hit the jackpot, I’m sure of it. Ok, maybe it’s not in tangible things or monetary value, but it is the biggest jackpot of all time. I got the BEST mom. Ever.

You see, maybe I didn’t get her genes, but I got her unconditional love, her desire to be a mom, and her drive to give me a better life than I would’ve had otherwise.

From being adopted as an infant, my mom has always been there for me – no matter what. Even now at 30 and with 2 kids of my own, I know she is there for whatever we need. She is the best Gramma. We have had some very fun times together, just us. We’ve driven countless kilometres to water ski and ringette tournaments and that time together in the car were some of our best times! She has been my rock in the toughest times, even when those times were just as tough or tougher for her. She truly is my best friend.

She has pushed me to be a better person, a better daughter, a better sister and a better mom. I hope that in 30 years my kids have 1/2 of the love and respect that I have for her.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
