The Things I Admire in my Mom
Meet my ultimate critique partner and my beta reader: my mom. She's not afraid to tell me if she doesn't like something about my writing, and she always makes it better in the end.
This is my mom at one of my concerts. My dad is on the left, and my sister (who is going to be a mom) and her husband are on the right.
Things I admire about my mom:
1. Her love for her children
My mom has always wanted to be a mom. That is her purpose in life and she loves it! She always put us four kids above her own career, and stayed home to be with all four of us growing up.
2. Her positive outlook on life.
She always cheers me up after I talk to her on the phone. She makes me realize how much I have instead of how much I want to have.
3. Her love of birthday parties.
We celebrate everyone's birthday in my family with a ginormous party where the whole family gathers and eats and opens presents.
4. Her artwork.
My mom majored in Art at Plymouth State University and she drew the map for me for my epic fantasy, The Voices of Ire.
5. Her warm and caring nature
She loves to hug and is always there for me. She's never afraid to tell all of us children how much she loves us and how much she misses us being around.
Happy Mother's Day Everyone!
