From daughter to mother: a special Mother’s Day reflection


My mom has worked her entire life tirelessly to ensure that both my dad and I were taken care of. She often spent many a Friday night in the football stands making sure that I knew she was there in the stands supporting me as I played in the band at Weatherford High and she was there for both my high school and college graduations, beaming with pride as her only child achieved the dreams that she had not.

My mom is now 83 and age has caught up with her and has slowed her down health wise. Now it is my turn to be the nurse, cook, educator and friend that my mom has been to me for 46 years. I don’t know where I would be if she hadn’t been there often pushing me to achieve my goals or lending a helping hand when she could. My mom is my best friend and I could not have asked for a more wonderful mother.

Happy Mother’s Day, momma! I love you so very much! – Lori.
