I remember back in public school (this is going WAYYY back people) when we would dedicate part of our day to creating that amazing mother’s day gift. From macaroni art, to hand drawn cards, to those things where you spell mother down the page and come up with sentences for each letter, to collages of cut-up magazines words describing you mother, where you cut up the the word “sexy”, not knowing what it meant and your mother throws it in your face year after year (and keeps it tucked away in a little box of memories.)
My mama – or drama mama as I lovingly call her – is a pretty amazing person. For the longest time she played the role as a single mother. She was literally the role of two parents while working two jobs and taking care of a handful of children. When we lived in the states, there was a time where we needed food stamps and social assistance to get us on our feet and she ALWAYS kept her head held high. Never let ANYONE get you down.
She made our clothes, our dolls clothes and tried to make the best situations out of everything and anything. (I still think she would make a KILLING on Etsy!)
She put US first. Always. She made sacrifices. She did her best, and I love her for it.
So I obviously dedicate this post to my mama. She made me the strong person that I am today. She made me value everything and anything (even the small things!) She passed on life lessons (“Things happen for a reason”, “Treat others the way YOU wish to be treated” “It ISSSSS what it ISSSS”…etc.)
I love you drama mama! (I’m sure someone will read this blog post to you, since you don’t know how to turn on a computer…) Happy Mother’s Day! xo
