APOLOGY!...and Gratitude Day 4

I am so sorry for that awful music that inadvertently somehow ended up on my blog.
Thank you for calling it to my attention. I hope it didn't scare anyone away....

OK- Gratitude Day 4
This is along the same lines as yesterday and is mainly the reason for my wonderful childhood and also the reason I am who I am.

My mama.
An amazing,warm, loving, compassionate, sarcastic, funny, imaginative, artistic, beautiful, tireless and courageous over achiever who believed and defended her convictions, fought for the underdog and who could turn no person in need away. She believed and taught that every woman needed to be self sufficient and dependent on only themselves. There are consequences to all your actions, and good or bad, if you did it, you alone own the consequence. It is OK to be quirky. Have faith. Follow your dreams, your heart, your soul....turn to God for help, and when all else fails, try God again.
oh, she was also a firm believer in the occasional use of ....ay dios mio and manana.
she liked to swear, too.
