This is my mom. Very pregnant with twins.
She wasn’t prepared for twins, cried when she found out, but made it work.
With support of course from our amazing dad.
It’s her birthday today, 12-22.
As a kid it was difficult to find a gift for her this close to Christmas
Often it had to be combined. No one wants that on their birthday.
My mom has been a driving force in my success as an adult.
She worked nights for many years and still present at breakfast to send us kids off to school.
I never made the connection that she actually worked nights until adulthood.
When I wake up for work I think, “what if I were working all night”. I don’t know how she did it for so many years.
That’s how present she was in the mornings. I took for granted that she was always there to send us off.
I know my twin felt the same.
If he was here today, he’d be sending love to her today.
She’s my inspiration and my best friend.
