Mother’s day and Father’s day have always been special holidays for me. After all, I’m celebrating the two people who (with God) brought me into this world. And I have amazing parents.
So, in honor of (belated) Mother’s day, here’s to my mom! An amazing woman who cares so much for her girls and grand-girls, her parents, sisters, and everyone else in her life. Who worries a lot about us because she wants for everything to be right in our lives. Who is truly one of my best friends and someone I can go to with anything and everything. The person I call for advice in life, financial tips because I have NO idea what all of the technical financial terms mean, to share happy moments, and to calm me down when I feel like my world is falling apart. Yes, I have my fiancee to do many of these things as well, but there’s just nothing like a mom’s advice. After all, she’s seen me grow up, helped me pick up the pieces after my mistakes, and griped at me to clean my room more times than I can count. (I thank her for this now because my apartment is typically very tidy.)
Another great thing about my mom is she’s always there to help in any way she can. She’s saved me from many cake disasters and helped with a bunch of deliveries. Fixed the cage of my UFC cake when the sun melted it. And drove 2 hours after work on a Friday to help me finish 300 cake balls for a friends’ wedding favors. All because she knew that, despite my claims, I couldn’t handle it alone.
So here’s to you, mom. A truly amazing woman and even better mom!
Also for Mother’s day, a friend ordered these cake balls from Little Bit Sweet for her mom. I’m rather pleased with them! Strawberry cake balls with white chocolate coating. Yummy!
