Is there someone reading this ? How was your week ? I hope that, if it was like mine with ups and downs, doing this simple Gratitude Friday will brighten it up. It’s when I do my Gratitude Friday while I had bad moments in my week that I realize how positive this thing is. It allows me to focus on what was good, where the Joy was and to put aside all the crankiness I can feel.
I admit that I’m writing this blogpost on thursday… because Friday June 4th 2010 is circled in red on our calendars for months: my mum arrives from France !!! We didn’t see each other since our expatriation in Vancouver on January 12 2009, almost a year and a half: too too long !
So I want to dedicate this Gratitude Friday to the woman who gave birth to me, my Mamounette as I call her.
Thank you for being my mum. My soul may have chosen you before to reincarnate and I’m beginning to see why you and not someone else. Thank you for showing me that a woman can be strong, you are a warrior.
Thank you for the sacrifices you made for me to have a “normal” life despite the lack of a father in my life. As says the French Rapper Diam’s (who’s a woman, by the way): “it was as good without a father” and even if it was sometimes hard to deal with everyone question “have you been adopted” because we don’t look like each other, even if sometimes I wished to have a “normal” family, it was good as it was and I am the woman I am now thanks to this.
Thank you for ALWAYS supporting me, no matter what choice I make. You’re my greatest support with Anthony and I know how precious it is to feel loved and trusted. Without it, I wouldn’t trust myself at all. It sometimes hard for you to accept my choices but you’re always there, you keep telling me to follow my Dreams before it’s too late, because it’s important to accomplish what your heart tells you.
Thank you mamounette for loving me the way I am…
