Happy Birthday

4:00 AM

So there’s this lady I call mom.  It’s her birthday today.  A woman never tells her age so unfortunately I will have to keep all of you guessing how old she’s turning today.  Regardless I am so proud to call this woman my mama.  For those of you who don’t know, both of my parents traveled overseas for the American Dream.  Back in the 80’s they got married and then they didn’t see each other for 4 years because my mom couldn’t get her Visa to come to America.  Can you imagine that?  Getting married and never having a honeymoon?  So my dad traveled alone and worked here in America until my mom FINALLY got her Visa!  A few years later my parents bought their first car then their first house, then poof I came along and six years after that I was a big sister.  I was this little human being calling this woman mommy.  She’s the strongest person I know (no offense dad).  She had to endure so much with growing up in Poland during the Cold War, Poland taking forever to give her permission to come here, then having to learn English and working in a factory with me in her belly all the way up until she couldn’t work anymore.  My mom sacrificed everything and decided that once I was born she was going to be a stay at home mom.  She had her own businesses (guess who I get my crafty side from) and is now running a successful one for the past I believe 6/7 years.  Imagine that!

I am lucky that this amazing woman has been taking care of me since I was just a little peanut in her belly.  My mom isn’t just the woman who gave birth to me, she’s my comfort, my home, my best friend.  Home is where your mom is.  She still cooks for me and pretty much force feeds me even when I’m not hungry.  On a side note, whenever you’re over a Polish person’s house if their mom offers food DO NOT REFUSE it, just eat it.  Anyway, my mom makes everything homemade so um, it’s a no brainer, even when I’m not hungry I eat 90% of the time.

I know my mom is reading this right now because I think she’s the only person who reads my blog 3+ times a day haha.  Happy Birthday Mommy, I don’t know what I would do without you.
