you capture - motherhood

My mother is a wonderful person. Really, truly, wonderful.

But... We're kind of different from each other.

She wants to be the life of the party. I don't even want to go to the party.

She likes to share what she's doing with everyone. I just want to do what I do and go home.

She out there, in the mix, for everyone to see. I'm most likely someplace quiet where no one can find me.

And I sometimes get the feeling that she wishes I was.... different. More.... something.

I'm not different, though. I'm just me. Which is fine with her, I know. But still.

So here, Mom, this one's for you....

This sure sounds familiar. My mom and I are so different. She loves to talk and be around people. I'm the opposite.

This is a raw and beautiful post!

I wanted to let you know about The 52 Weeks of Happiness Project going on over at my blog every Tuesday. Please join me in my quest to scout out happiness for a whole year. Simply post a photo of something that makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it. Here is a link to last week's carnival if you want to see what it is all about.
