Mama Soup

This lady. She deserves every award under the sun.

Name something you’d only do for the person you love and she’s done it at least twice.

That includes conquering her biggest fears to get to me or make my dreams come true. This woman drove across one of the scariest bridges in the United States to get to me when I was sick. She ate dinner at the top of the Eiffel Tower and climbed over 400 steps to the top of Notre Dame even though she’s deathly afraid of heights. 

She’s given up dinners with my Dad, day trips to NYC, and Christmas mornings because I’ve been sick. She’s also completely modified trips because of illnesses. I was diagnosed with mono two days before my first visit to New York City at 15 years old. She altered each day to make sure that we fit in time to nap and recharge. 

She hasn’t missed a choir concert, band performance, play (even though I had a small role), lacrosse game, or birthday for 26 years. THAT is a love that I cannot put into words. 

And here we are, two days before Mother’s Day and she’s researching and prepping meals for me to eat after my wisdom teeth are removed on Monday. I plan to pamper the CRAP out of her on Sunday before the focus shifts to me. Happy Mother’s Day to the lady who doubles as my Mama and best friend.

    This was such a sweet post! I am sure mama Soup was more than happy to do all of these things for you, her daughter and best friend. It’s so nice to see someone else that has such a great relationship with their mom. I hope you two have the best day on Sunday.
