Happy Birthday Mum.

Today is my mothers birthday and I woke up really early and prayed to God on her behalf. I thanked God so much for her life. for her health, for her personality, for her strength, and at some point I started crying because I just realized all this woman has done for me. Now I would not begin to list them all her because I would be writing for months but all I can say is I am grateful.

The carrying a child for 9 months bit is already hard enough but the real work begins when the child is born. I would not be the way I am today if not for my mother. I am a strong, independent, smart, Christian, beautiful woman because of my mother. The discipline she instilled in me growing up has made me the woman I am today. I am so VERY Thankful for her. My mum is my rock. The great woman of God I desire to be when I grow up. She balances a career in nursing, being an entrepreneur and being a full time mother to four children.

She taught me to cook, clean, dress up, put on makeup, do my hair, study, pray, read my bible, do my nails, in general the fundamentals of being a good woman. I don't know where or what I would be without her. Today my only gift to her is prayer and love. The flowers die, the kitchen utensils stop working. but my love would always be there and my prayers would take her father than ever. I love my mum! She is my twin! I cannot wait for the day I start taking care of her as she has done for the past 20+ years for me.


Funny story: In my first yr of university, my parents helped me move to a city 5hrs away. we drove down and I checked into residence. While I went to familiarize myself with the campus, my parents went shopping and bought me a laptop, printer, duvet and other necessities. The store (future shop) was out of the printer my parents picked, So I was supposed to go back two weeks later to get the printer. I walked into the store two weeks later and this happens.....

Clerk:wohhhh woahhhh woahhhhhhh.
Me: huh??? (surprised look on face)
Clerk: you are here to pick up a printer eh?
Me: Yes. How did you know?
Clerk: Damn OMG. OMG! you look EXACTLY like your mother.
Me.(confused face)
Clerk: WOW I have never seen two people look alike like this. Like you walked in here and I knew you where her daughter.
ME..LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

Yes this happens everyday. If you see me and my mum, we are TWINS! that's why I call her my twin! hehehe...Here as some pictures to prove it..:)

I wanted to share with you a AMAZING site I just came across teaching [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] For All Levels If you guys have seen the Discovery Channel TV Show called Fight Quest you would have seen their chief instructor Ran Nakash there featured on their [url=http://www.kravmagabootcamp.com][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] episode. Anyways, let me know what you think. Is training via the internet something you would do?

Well...hopefully I have some precious time to educate myself. Time to start reading. Say thank you every person in advance for your help and advice.

I have a web-site about [url=http://newmoviereleasesdvd.info/]Watch Movies Online Free[/url] and if the person is keen on that subject I believe they will pay a visit to it.
