I Got It From My Mama

As a little girl I watched my Mom use her sewing machine with such skill and made beautiful dresses for my sister and I to wear.  Her ability to draw and paint is amazing.  During my school age years she was also a fantastic "helper" with my intricate and detailed science projects, dioramas, and posters.  When people say "you are just like your Mom" I can proudly "yup, I am!" because of her, I've become who I am now.

Some of the things I learned from my Mama:
Cooking is from the heart.  I've learned some recipes from her, but nothing I cook can replicate her food.
If you're going to do it, get it done right [my perfectionist side]
Sometimes we have to sacrifice our own wants for the sake of family.
Surviving the tough times in life will make someone stronger, but there's nothing like the support of family.
Money isn't the most important, but happiness is.
The strength of a woman will always be tested, but it is how she recovers will determine how strong she is.
No matter what a pain I was when I was growing up, there's nothing else better than knowing that my Mama was always there for me.
Thanks Ma!

By the way, here's my first outfit post!! This counts, right?
