Like My Mother Does

People always say I have a laugh like my mother does.

Guess that makes sense – she taught me how to smile when things get rough.

I’ve got her spirit. She’s always got my back. When I look at her I think, I want to be just like that.

She’s a rock. She is grace. She’s an angel. She’s my heart and soul. She does it all.

When I feel weak and unpretty, I know I’m beautiful and strong because I see myself like my mother does.

If you’re a fan of country music, then you’ll recognize these lyrics from the song “Like My Mother Does” by Lauren Alaina. This song always has reminded me of my own mom, and with Mother’s Day approaching this Sunday, I’m reminded how I’m forever in debt to the man upstairs for letting me born to her. Mom, you are the Lorelai to my Rory – you’re my best friend and biggest confidant. If I’m blessed to become a mother someday, I hope that I can be half the one that you have been to me the past 27 years. I love you!

How do you celebrate the mothers, grandmothers, aunts, special women in your life, etc., for Mother’s Day?

    I just adore this song! Such a sweet post – I’d be lost if my relationship with my mom wasn’t what it is.

    Aw. You two are so lovely and radiant in these photos. Your relationship is inspiring too. Not everyone has been blessed with such a sweet loving mother.

    Oh gosh, you’ve got me crying this morning! Such beautiful words that I’m not sure I’m so deserving of, but I thank God everyday for you and for allowing me to be your mother. I’m so glad that we’ll all be together on Saturday!

    I lost my mom 12 years ago, losing my best friend was the hardest thing ever. It’s funny how my mom used to call me her Rory (that was our favorite show!). Looks like you have a special bond with your mom. Cherish it! xo, Jess

      I love hearing other mother/daughters that love Gilmore Girls as much as we do! I’m so sorry about your loss, but at least you can smile and know that you had such a special bond with your mom. I’m sure she’s with you every single day. 🙂

    So sweet! You definitely look a lot like your mom. Love all of these pictures too. 🙂
