|My favorite picture of my Mom and I|
My Mom is a very special lady. I'm one blessed lady to have a mom who isn't just my mom, but my best friend. I know if I ever have a rough day, or just need someone to talk too, she will be there. She is one amazing Mawmaw too.
As many of you know, my brother and I were adopted by Mary and Jim O'Neill when we just little kids. I still remember the first time I met them for the first time. My Dad was in the Air Force at the time, and I thought having an “Army Man” as a Dad was great! My mom was a beautician which I thought was great too.
The one thing that I remember most about fist meeting my Mom was her smile. To a child that has been taken away from everything that was “normal” to them, a kind face is always a welcome sight. :) It didn't take me long to realize that me and this lady were going to be great friends. And I can say, that to this day, my Mom is one of my best friends!
I have so many awesome memories with my mom. Memories such as ~ The time we stopped in the middle of a thunder storm to rescue a cat. To the time we were scared out of our minds by some raccoon hunters while we were on a night walk. :) One of my favorite memories was the time I found a sick owl on the side of the road and Mom let me pick it up and take it home. We kept it in an old pickup truck overnight. The next morning it was better and I got to let it go.
I remember coming home from work as a teenager and Mom would always wait up on me, no matter how late it was. I would come home a plop on her bed and tell her about my day, she always listened, and still does. :) I know if I have had a rough day and just need someone to talk to, I can call her.
I love my Mom and all the fun and crazy times we have had. I look forward to seeing her again next year and getting to create some more great memories!
