This is my mom, Rita:
As you might be able to see from the picture here, she is a 4’11” crazy, spitfire amazing lady! There are so many things I learned from my mama, but one of the biggest lessons is to be strong and carry on thru any adversity. She was orphaned young, struggled with depression and beat ovarian cancer. She raised my two brothers and my sister and me through being fair, humble and extremely loving. She also taught me not to lay blame and take responsibility for my actions. If you have never seen this hysterical video, you will LOVE THIS:
and Here’s a poem by Joanna Fuchs I’ll share with you for your own “lessons you learned from mom” memories and stories and thanks for all who shared on the show today!
Watching your caring ways.
I learned about joy from you
In fun-filled yesterdays.
Of faults both big and small.
I learned what I know about living
From you, as you gave life your all.
I’d never want any other.
I’m thankful for all that you taught me,
And I’m blessed to call you “Mother.”
