My Super Model

I am posting this earlier because right now, it's already Mother's Day where my Mommy is.  

To my Mom, whose life continues to make my own life richer and more anchored in love...

B...Believes in my abilities and encourages me to always strive to be the best I can be.
L...Listens whether it be about my successes, failures, joys, heartaches, dreams or         
     insanities.
A...Answers my needs no matter how inconvenient it may be for her (She flies over 8,000 
    miles across the seas one way to visit and help me out, to ‘spoil’ me when I need my   
    Mommy).
N...Normalcy, that's what she gives me whenever I drown in panic or get overwhelmed 
      with the demands of motherhood.  I can always rely on her to put things into 
      proper perspective and have her say, "That's really how it is.  Do not worry so much."
C...Calls me almost everyday even just to say hello, making sure I’m doing alright and am 
      able to keep my head above the water and my feet on the ground.
A...Accepts me for who I am…a mother who still has a lot to learn and a lot of edges to 
    smoothen; a daughter who will always be stubborn and whose passion and intensity get 
    misplaced more often than what she would prefer; a person with still a lot of personal 
    demons to exorcise.

Thank you to the Universe for allowing me to have my Mother in my life.  I would be very happy and honored if I could be allowed to become even just half as great as my Mom is as a mother.  Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!  I hope you know how much I love you and continue to look up to you, even at this age, even from across the globe!
