I just got a phone call with THE BEST NEWS EVER. However, because i'm me, I have to wait a little bit before I let the cat out of the bag.
Alright, a happy list

So in case you somehow escaped social media on Sunday, it was Mother's Day. For some reason this year I had a few thoughts that were different than the normal thankfulness.
One, I saw a lot of posts saying "I love my Mom because she loved me when I was impossible to love" or "I'm so thankful for my Mom because even though I did everything for her to stop loving me she kept giving me love"
That led me to think about a conversation that my Mom and I had right before I got married? Or I actually can't remember when, but I was almost done with college. Anyway, I was expressing to her how grateful I was to her when she loved me when I was so unloveable. She honestly gave me the strangest look and told me the thought never occurred to her not to!
I think that we don't give our mama's enough credit. I haven't been a Mom but from what I understand it's the most unconditional love that has ever existed. So as bad as we sometimes think we are, as unloveable as we think we may be, I don't think we are.

Another thought I had is how cool it has been to see ladies my age have babies and morph into these super moms! Maybe it's because I think about having another human life depend on me 100% and I have a mini freak out. I'm just so darn proud of those ladies, especially because a lot of people hate on them for some reason.
Hey! My name is Riley Jo. I have been living off Dr. pepper and a prayer since 1991. My life motto is one that Joey Gladstone taught me on Full House... make fun of yourself before anyone else has a chance to do it first! That's my goal here. Thanks for stopping by!
