My mom and I have a unique relationship. We are the best of friends as well as mother and daughter. And we get to share the amazing experience of writing together. She's fellow Muse author L.J. Holmes. I get to read her stuff before anyone else and she gets to read mine.
My mom is my hero. Life would be a real mess without her. We do fight on occasion, but we always know that we'll get over it quick and still be so grateful for the other. We also have a lot of fun doing things together that would be mundane and boring were it not for the company.
On Saturday we spent the day going through our vast collection of books and dvd's. We live in an apartment and have limited space, so we were picking out the ones we don't watch often or re-read a lot and putting them away in crates. Instead of it being a boring and tiring chore, we spent the whole time teasing each other and laughing.
Our eldest cat sat on top of our printer supervising while the youngest glowered at us for disturbing her cat bed so we could get to some empty crates. And after we were done we had lunch and our cats decided to hop into empty bags and make them dance.
I love my Mom. She's the bravest person I know in the whole world. And what's more, she's my best friend. So Happy Mother's Day Mom. I love you and so do the cats.
P.S. I think Spatz is planning on nailing her bed down so we can't move it again.:-)
