Good evening everyone!!!! Happy Mothers Day!! I know it’s not Thursday but I was so inspired by Mothers’s Day, I couldn’t resist. Today is a very special day for women all over the world. It doesn’t matter if you have children or not, each and every one of us has been a mother to someone at some point in time. Today is all about gratitude.
I am so thankful to have my mother and grandmother, both women are amazing and I feel very blessed to have them in my life. My mom is the most amazing woman in the world, but boy oh boy if you pi$$ her off……well, all I have to say is run….and take cover!! LOL! Just kidding. ;) No, but seriously she definitely didn’t take any crap growing up that’s for sure. I guess she gets it from my grandmom. They just don’t make them like that anymore. She is “Strong like bull” LOL! (my grandmom) Nan, as I call, has told me some very helpful advice over the years about men. She would always say “Erica, be careful of those men!!! They only want one thing!! Men always say if you love me….SHOW ME you love me!”. (meaning give up the goods) HAHAHA!! Too funny!! I always thought to myself “Nan…..what if I only want that one thing as well??”. LOL!! Just kidding. But boy is she tough. She is the foundation of my family. She has created a generation of women that are proud, courageous, independent and yes, sometimes a little crazy!! LOL! I promise that it will never be a dull moment when one of the Johnson women are around. ;)
I will never forget her dirty jokes, they always make for a good laugh. I’m not sure what’s funnier, the fact that an 86 year old women is telling a dirty joke or the fact that she always tells it wrong? :) Let’s not forget her special talent of being brutally honest without caring what people think. Every Christmas when I get to go home she has no problem telling me how she really feels. First she yells at me for gaining weight saying I eat too much. Then she yells at me when I don’t eat everything on my plate saying I’m wastful! LOL! I can’t win. Ahhhhhh….. growing up we definetly had some good times. Memories that will last a lifetime. My grandmom is amazing mother which in turn made my mom and amazing mother so hopefully I’m next in line to be an amazing mother as well. Yup, I said it!! I can’t wait to one day have little bambinos. ;) Someday… not tomorrow. Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful women out there.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM AND NAN!!! I LOVE YOU BOTH TO PIECES!! XOXOXOXO
Tip of the Day: YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL HOW A MAN WILL TREAT YOU BY HOW HE TREATS HIS MOM! :)
