As we head into mom's week, I'm reminded of the hard work and love
that my mother puts into our family, like the late nights of caring for us
when we're sick, or making our meals - both for dinner and for lunch the next day.
Not to mention the super knowledge that my mom has in knowing where everything I misplaced is.
Then you've got the awareness of knowing when the deadlines for my dentist appointments are,
the attention and loving ability to listen when we need it most, when we're at our lowest,
contrasted by the proud acknowledgement when we excitedly tell her about our personal bests.
Then I think about all the patience my mom has in putting up with my random ventures or my quirky pet peeves,
and the trust and faith she has when I tell her I'm going to do something new.
For all the moms in my sales area,
I want you to know that I appreciate the fact that being a mom is the hardest job in the world,
because I've experienced first hand seeing my mom work her BUTT off EVERYDAY
for me and my brother and never expecting a thing in return.
I want to thank you for doing an amazing job,
because even though you may not be acknowledged every day for it, we love and appreciate you.
You are the reason we are the people we are, because it's either good genes or good parenting, and both ways, that's a role you've played!
This week, I will treat every mom I meet as my very own, because I know my mom will be proud that I did.
To all the moms, thank you for doing what you do.
To my mom, this week is for you.
from me and SWCalgary

[Verse 1 ]
Here we are, Summer 2012 is a go,
And there's nothing stopping us from working it out as we hoped,
Because every day, like Tommy, We’re hittin’ em numbers gunnin’
And may I say, ladies and gentlemen, you look stunning
Mister McDermott asserted that we’d earn it if we served it
well on a platter, we deserve it,
if we hungry enough to never dessert (desert) it,
Courage with purpose, dedicated and work it – UGH, ugh ugh
We see Arash is scribbling GROWTH up on the car dash,
I always saw that bookman be running far
How could we get blue lights, when Ronnie is the Law
and yeah we do it right, so now we want it all (DIR)
Mostofi's, mostly, swaggin' it with families
Marta’s droppin' bags before she goes for groceries
So please before you give up on anything,
I hope you remember this melody.
I hop out my car, I gotta lotta books,
Mommas love me and it's not just cause of my good looks
El say "you want some?" They're sayin’ "Ask me!"
Desi explores and learns, how to catch me!
And we “much in “D-mand”, channel 23,
And we the top ten, consisten-cy
Julien, JuJu's in, Sarah’s back to win,
like Emily, all they do is Lin, Lin, Lin
Lin, Lin, no matter what
TLee like a library, she books it til it's dark
Joke, just for fun, I’ma rhyme Boonyaleephun,
We got Joy like Kong, we crazy caught it
Anna CANADA Hoang, patriotic, fought to be on it,
And when it's closing time, they say I'm SemiSonic
You know we finish strong, man, we already done it, we
Simply fall back on this melody
We watched our whole life change, in a couple of years
Who woulda ever thought we woulda caught the world by the ears
It’s like, people only see it, the way it appears
But they never see the ropes and the pulleys and the gears, (ha)
Since results don't Ly, we know that Jenny's fly,
Action Jackson sayin' Chao-ZI, how's my s’mile?, ‘hi’gh’, (mile high)
Pena prancin’ a lot, made Addy dance, BAP, Pecarsky’s like, ‘man, hot’
Munoz is musing over how that ever ‘Tran’-sitioned, Liz is in, (vreeh) tran’s-mission,
With JQ times 2, KKu's like Kay cool,
man, we ready to do it up,
I live and die for my team, these guys are more than my homies
We put it all on the line, we gave up all our belongings for this
Cause at the end of the day, it ain't just for us
Call it Making a way, yeah, hit the chorus
A blog on my continuing journey through life, covering self-development and success strategies, but also personal reflection.
