My mom and I have an incredibly close, awesome relationship. It didn't always feel that way (Hello, angsty teenage years!) but I know she's always been my biggest fan and #1 supporter. She'd do absolutely anything for me, and I can't even begin to show my gratitude for her. It was just me and her growing up, so she sacrificed a lot of things to make sure I always had what I needed (and wanted), and she never missed a ball game or practice. And I played a lot of sports. (I don't know how she did it, honestly). Her birthday always falls within 3 or 4 days of Mother's Day, so I try to make it extra special for her. I celebrated Father's Day with her growing up, too. When you're a single mom, you do it all. You don't really have a choice otherwise. Regardless of circumstance, she always made sure I knew I was loved an cherished, and I can only hope I am able to reciprocate that to her. (and show the same to my kids).
I have so many amazing memories with my mom. One (many?) of my favorite memories are of her taking me to so many concerts! (Don't laugh at me... these are ridiculous!) We went to those "All That Music and More Festivals" (you know, LFO, 98 Degrees, Aaron Carter... aww yeah!), Spice Girls, N*Sync, etc. I know she was totally out of her element, but it was so fun to spend that time with her. it was something we were able to share together and I love thinking back on those days. I hope I can be half as cool as a mom as she is. (Though that photo above is from last year at the Cher concert! haha)
JTV asked if I wanted to team up again to treat my mom to a little something special from their site (and give you the chance to treat your mom, too!) and of course I said yes. I picked out a ring from their collection and got a matching one, too. My mom is not a big jewelry person honestly. She mostly only wears her wedding ring and maybe a necklace here or there. But she loved the sentimental thought behind the ring I chose and she thought it was absolutely beautiful in person.
