My Mom

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 10, 2009

Is beautiful.


Inside and out.

She is thoughtful and kind,


Understanding when I made mistakes in life,


Always encourages me to follow my dreams. Even if that meant roller-skating in a pink polka dot outfit:


She captivates and lights up a room,


She shares my love of good food,


She has a deep passion for life and always shows her true emotions,

She encouraged me throughout stressful times in university and told me never to sell myself short,


She beamed with pride when I graduated with an undergraduate degree,


And with a master’s degree,

She is playful,

And most of all she is my best friend.


Even though I can’t be with her on Mother’s Day, she is in my heart and thought of very fondly today and always!

Love you mom! xo

What a lovely post, Angela! You are your mum are beautiful. I got a shock when I read it and thought I’d forgot about mother’s day, but luckily here in London we celebrate it on a different day of the year.

Love your blog, you have inspired my so much when embarking on a healthy lifestyle. I have just started a new blog ( where I’ll be writing about my acting career, please check it out if you get a moment!

Thanks for posting the pictures! I always love when I get to see a glimpse into the personal lives of the bloggers I read…there is so much more to being happy with yourself and life than just fitness and nutrition. I hope you had a wonderful day with your mom!
