Mother of Mine
This beautiful woman is my mother.
The black and white ones above are from about FOUR years ago when she was pregnant with my little brother Tristin (shot with a lovely disposable camera)! Then these colored ones were about a year ago.
So, I've been thinking lately about my mom- and I'm being honest on here because well its my blog I can do whatever I want right?? I put these pictures on here mostly because I can't remember the last time I saw her smile, or heard her laugh (even over the phone). I've been a little lost with my emotions/ thoughts cause I don't know what to do to help her. I FEEL HOPELESS. For those of you that have no idea what I'm even talking about, we'll just keep it at that, BUT please I am asking for your prayers on my mom's behalf. I feel like life growing up with her wasn't always easy, but I DO REMEMBER her smiling and I've lost that. I do love my mom more than she'll probably ever know. I see her in myself everyday. I think as a daughter I know her pretty well, so I would ask of all of you that read this that I do not need to be reminded of the things she isn't. I mean how horrible would it be for someone to talk to your kids about all the bad things you've ever done. I'm not saying that I don't want to talk about whats going on or that I don't need help. I'm just saying I've heard it OVER AND OVER and I've heard it all. We all make mistakes, but Heavenly Father loves you, me, and my mother all the same. He has hope for all of us. So please pray for her that she can get through whatever she's going through.
I just want to add some of the things I love about my mom:
the most beautiful woman I have ever seen
always the life of any party
her singing voice :)
I grateful that she exposed me to the world early
HER POEMS they are incredible she is a very talented writer
I love her dollar store glasses
her high heels and acrylic nails
red lipstick stains on my cheek
her pork chops and apple sauce
her strength in being a single mom
the way she dances she's a totally hippy
she's my biggest fan, and wants me to sing to her every time I see her
she collects postcards
I love that she took my brother and I so many places when we were young
she's a reader
she changes her furniture around about every three months :)
I could go on and on about all the little things I love about that woman. I just want to think and be positive when it comes to my mom. I love you all and I hope this doesn't make anyone upset.
With all the love I have- Alexa.
