Ode To My Mom

My mom taught me how
to talk
to walk
to sing
to dance
to cook
to play nice
to worship
to be fun
to be who i am
to have a sense of humor - always

she claims not to be creative

but she encouraged me to draw
spent for my art supplies
got me an art tutor
supports all my artistic endeavors
encouraged me to become an architect
always loved all my creations
is my biggest cheerleader

to this day, she
loves all my jewelry creations
is my biggest fan on facebook
is my best art benefactor


since she is an amazing entrepreneur herself, she
gave me my mind for business 
my entrepreneurial spirit
my tendency to march to a different drummer
and my love for independence

in all reality, practically speaking, none of us would be here without our moms.

So, for my mom...

thank you

for birthing me
for caring for me
for loving me for who i am and who i am going to be
for being there for me always
and for being my biggest inspiration.

i love you.
