My Mom

The story of my childhood, and the moment I realized my mom was the best friend I’ll ever have. The memories of running and laughing and having the best days with her- Taylor Swift

Last night I was feeling really sick and so I woke up my mom and she sat with me for hours. She is so funny and is always making me laugh so hard. In fact yesterday during church she made me laugh really hard but I had to try and keep control of myself. She is always saying things that make me smile! While I was feeling really sick I had to tell her to stop making me laugh because it was making my stomach hurt even more. She will watch my dance routines and sing along to my favorite songs! She is truly my best friend! She thinks she doesn't have talents but its not true! She always wants the best for others and looks for the good in everyone. I want to be a better person because of her. She has always been so supportive of me being adopted. Mom, this song The Best Day by Taylor Swift is totally our song, I always have the best days when I am with you.
The Best Day

I'm five years old and it's getting cold
I've got my big coat on
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you
I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides
Look now the sky is gold
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home
I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away
But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop till I forget their names
I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel ok
But I know I had the best day with you today

I have an excellent father
His strength is making me stronger
God smiles on my little brother
Inside and out he's better than I am
I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run
And I had the best days with you

There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world
Now I know why all the trees change in the fall
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong
And I love you for giving me your eyes
Staying back and watching me shine and I didn't know if you knew
So I'm taking this chance to say that I had the best day with you today
