FIRST, I must say that my best friend since FIRST grade haha (get it first, first) Ok…Does most certainly have a blog but does not really have followers because she never tried to. She does it for fun and she has AWESOME recipes on there so gah head…check it out! She is also featured on my one post – This one’s for the girls .. I give you Anna Banana @ Bullet’s Bite !! Give her some love!!!
Ok…I love my Momma! She is so strong and such an inspiration to all women. My mother was born on December 1, 1955. For all of you history buffs it is indeed the day Rosa Parks sat in front of the bus. She had a gorgeous Mother (Who you can see here!) and a very handsome Father whom became pregnant at the age of 19. It was unexpected and so they did the “right thing” in those days and were married. A year later my Aunt Beverly was born and when my Momma was 10 years old my Aunt Collette was born.
She had such long beautiful hair that you can not see here BUT
I think at her age here she slightly resemebles Lynn Collins the actress from Wolverine:
My Grandmother and Grandfather were always working which led my Ma’ to grow up fast for her age. I call her a book-worm but she just loves learning and being graded on it. Even to this day! How do I keep this short?
Ok, so she was a very successful accountant for laboratory company who actually made the lottery balls (haha that was so cool to me as a kiddo). She eventually decided when I was about 13, 14? That she was not happy with her occupation that she has worked so hard for and decided to continue working AND going back to school for teaching. Once she starting taking courses she was blowing people out of the water and people helped guide her along her way out of her astonishing focus and drive.
She became a teacher almost immediately in the Philadelphia school district (which does not have the highest reputation) through an “Emergency Certification”. This resulted in her having to make a decision and she left her job taking a GREAT percentage amount in her pay cut.
Well not ONE regret comment has come out of her mouth since then and she gets paid just fine being she worked her way up in the school district. She gets the students involved and has them do advertising for the local Philadelphia sports, they then get to meet the players of the season (Flyers, Eagles, Phillies) she gets free games through her connections that she had built (that benefits me time to time 😉 ), she has local radio stations throw concerts at her schools.
Going on and on can be an option but I want you to be as inspired as I am of my wonderful Mother. She is ONE class away of having her doctorates in teaching lol! What?? She just started about ten years ago out of a career change!? Amazing!
All that I am trying to say is that it’s never too late to chase your dream and it’s certainly not something you should question. My Mother had a vision and did it, now she is very well-respected and has turned programs around beyond belief, she is extraordinary and I know I can always count on her because being a Mom is always her # 1 role.
I don’t know how she does it all and I don’t know how she keeps going after Allllll our family has been through (which is soo much beyond what you could imagine) but she is the kindest woman with the biggest heart. Just don’t twist her loud, outspoken mouth with rudeness…it is what it is with my Ma’.
I love her more than she will ever know and admire her ever single day of my life. She has kept our family safe and together our whole lives and will never leave any of our sides. I don’t want to get into detail everything she has had to deal with for our family but just know and trust she needs a break.
So guys, what can I do for my beautiful Mother for Christmas? What is something that will blow her away and just let her have her own day for once.
And you know she gets pedicures, manicures blah blah.
- What is the best gift you have given to an important woman or a great gift you heard about?
- I just really want to give her everything she deserves in a gift (without spending my entire life savings haha)
- If you don’t have any ideas, what are some must haves or must have to get for someone for the holidays??
- AND HIS BROTHER THAT PUTS ME IN A HEADLOCK EVERY CHANCE HE GETS:
- We had chicken and broccoli Alfredo last night and if you are a lover of it like me…try this bad boy out!! Werth it! (only Phillies fans would get that)
