Today is Five Minute Friday. Only my second week of doing this. Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker at The Gypsy Mama gives a word, and you just write about it for five minutes. No editing or forethought. Today's word is Mama.
My mama is called Mom. She's sensitive and caring with a conservative and conventional take on life. She loves to go shopping, hates to cook and clean, and wants to help everyone. As I was typing that, I just realized I'm so much more like her than I thought. Other than the conventional part. And where she's calm and sensitive and opposed to conflict and not a risk taker, I'm opinionated and stubborn and argue way too much and love the thrill of taking risks. She hates that about me. But we love each other anyway.
While I don't always agree with her and we can drive each other crazy, she's still my mom. And I can't imagine my life without her. We talk almost every day, hang out often, and, thank God, we have a pretty good relationship.
She and my dad raised my two brothers and I pretty well. We are all really close, closer now than when I was younger. I love my parents, and my brothers are two of my best friends. I spend a lot of time with them. As a matter of fact, I'm at their house while typing this.
Mother's Day is coming up in a few months and I am so glad I have a mom I can celebrate with.
Well, time's up. I feel like I learned a few things about myself from that. Cool.
