Cheers to my Mom!

So with Mother's Day quickly approaching I find it compelling to write about my mom, Debra. Growing up as the only child of a hard-working single mother was no joke. She worked so hard for everything we had. She did what she needed to do and she always put me first. I was so lucky, so blessed, to have her as my mother. Now that I've grown, and have kids of my own, I can truly appreciate all that she has done for me as a child and even as an adult. She is strong, independent and most importantly a survivor. In more ways than one. She has overcome a lot of health issues and even breast cancer, but she has never let life get her down - she's too strong-minded for that! I love her so much, she is my best friend. 
Here we are together at "The Big Pink Ribbon" event last October.

This was for the "Put Your Pink Bra On" walk last October.

I love you, Mom!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Awe, that's wonderful Shell. That's the great thing about Mom's. It's never easy, but they do everything for their children (the good ones that is, not the crazy tanning lady, lol!) I hope you have an amazing Mother's Day.

  2. Thanks Jess! And yes, I'm pretty sure that crazy lady won't be winning the Mother of the Year Award anytime soon! LOL
