I hope people see that in me...

Earlier today I sent an email to Candid Carrie letting her know that I was going to take part in the Photo Finish Friday. I have really been taking a lot of photos of my class this week and I already knew exactly what I was going to blog about.. It was planned out in my mind.. This afternoon as I started to think about my post.. I thought I should at least upload my pictures... Ugh. This is when I found out that I had left my camera at school... I hate when I leave my camera at work. I hate when I leave my camera at home. I love it to be with me at all times.. I just don't feel right without it.. Okay, not really but it sounded good right?


I searched through my pictures and I thought.. Which one do I want to use.. I kept coming back to this one.. and so folks : ) Here you go:

My Mother and I

I took this picture of my mom and me the other day. We were just goofing around and being silly but I really love it. All my life I have been told that I look exactly like my dad.. but in this picture I see the similarities between my mom and I. The more I thought about it the more I realized. I do hope people think I look like my Mom. But really it's not the outside features that I am talking about.. For you see... My Mom has the sweetest spirit ever. I hope people see that in me. My Mom is scrappy. She fights for what she believes is right. I hope people see that in me. My Mom loves with her whole heart. She will do any and everything she can for those she loves and for even those she barely knows. I hope people see that in me. My Mom is crafty. My Mom has a good eye for decorating. I hope people see that in me. My Mom is tender hearted. My Mom aches for the hurting and prays for their needs. I hope people see that in me. My Mom makes mistakes but learns from them. She doesn't hide them away. I hope people see that in me.

**********************************************************************

Someone sent this to me the other day in an email. It had a witty little saying that I will not repeat but I do think it's one of the cutest things I have ever seen. It is totally not my picture. I don't know where it came from.. but I thought it was so cute. It definitely brought a smile to my face and I hope it makes you smile too. Don't you think it's just the cutest little donkey you have ever seen?

Melissa said...

Great picture....and I think you do look just like your mom; definitely same face shape & eyes!! Aren't you lucky? :)

Jenn said...

I love what you shared about your mom. Just in the picture, I can see so much of her in you. My mother passed away when I was 18 and a gorgeous picture of her graces my mantle. There is so much of her I hope others see in me too. What a blessing that you have a mother you want to emulate.

And I've never seen a donkey and had the word "cute" come to mind . But, CUTE!!!!! Loved that picture!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

I got Twilight-just thought you would want to know- I have a super busy weekend-but I will make time to read it, ASAP.
People ALWAYS tell me I look like my dad and that my sister looks like my mom. I always hated that! Although I adore my dad-who wants to be told you look like a man? I don't have his bushy eyebrows!! You look lovely-just like your mother!

kelliebean said...

What a sweet picture. And from what I've read around here, it sounds like you have much in common with your mom. Have a wonderful weekend!

Becky, your post about your mom made me cry...I lost my Mama this past may. It doesn't take much. I really enjoy your blog...My daughter sang, Crazy people by the wreckers (I think) , Cowboy's sweetheart , and Blue.

Aleta said...

Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog. The first thing I thought of when I saw the picture of you and your mom is how much the two of you look alike! It sounds like she is a lovely woman and a person that any daughter would be proud to call "Mom."

I think you look like your mom, too. Take a ton of you and your mom. Mine lives in Switzerland and I never see her. I so envy your shiny hair. Waves just don't shine. It's just a fact. Thanks for stopping by. I was in Oklahoma last week!

Tulsi said...

My Mikele will fall in love with this baby donkey!! It is the cutest thing.

Debbie said...

Yes, I do see your mom in you. She sounds like a great woman and I am sure she raised you to be the same.

Lane Boyz Mom said...

What a great picture and an even greater post, your Mom should feel honored and proud at the same time!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Ooh... loved the photo of your mom and you. I post pix (young and current) every Wednesday of my mom because that is the day I spend the whole day with her each week. She lives in an assisted living community. I think you would get a kick out of these. And everyone tells me how much they love the beautiful photos of my mom when she was young. The posts are always titled 'Wednesdays with my Mom'.

Pleasant Drive said...

Great picture of you and your mom! Isn't it funny how we spend our teen years trying to be different from our mothers, only to get older and realize that we hope to be just like them? Mothers are a true gift from the Lord.

Thank you for your prayers for my family.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The picture of you and your mom is so sweet! You do look a lot alike, and it's really sweet that you admire her spirit and hope that people see more important similarities between the two of you than just looks.

Oh, and that Donkey is stinkin' adorable!

Have a fantastic day!

Lindsay said...

You DO look like your mom, and that's an excellent compliment! I hope I have beautiful white hair like that when I'm old!

What a sweet little donkey! I think they are the cutest things. I've heard that they have personalities like dogs and make great pets.
