The love between a mother and daughter is forever -- Unknown

My mother and I share an unbreakable bond.

Bearing that in mind, if you think you'll ever get away with showing my mom any kind of disrespect around me, you're sadly mistaken. You will more than likely not ever earn my forgiveness, and I cannot deal with someone who thinks it's okay to be the kind of person who doesn't respect my mom. She has put up with a lot of bullcrap from people, and I will not put up with yours.

My mama is a good person. She does things to help others without expecting anything in return, and she listens and genuinely cares about others. She is respectful and kind, and a lot smarter than people give her credit for. She is so strong. She thinks to anticipate problems before they might happen, to make sure that my sister and I are prepared for anything that might come our way. She is my biggest fan and supports me even when I'm a smart-mouthy jerk to her. She works hard, and she has bent over backwards for me for almost 23 years now. So, if you think I wouldn't defend a person who has done nothing but look out for me even before I was born, just to let you have your way, you're a raving lunatic.

Things not working out doesn't just apply to guys, either. Friendships will not work out if you think you can say anything to be disrespectful to my mom. I don't care how mild you might think you're being, I will defend my mama before anything. It goes without saying that even if I were to complain (which I typically don't) about my mom, you'd better simply show sympathy for the problem I'm having itself, give me carefully worded advice, or just shut your mouth, because while I can talk about the situation, it's me venting, not asking you for your opinion.

To sum it all up, if you think of something nasty to say, keep your comments to yourself, because if I hear them, on a good day, you'll get the silent treatment, and on a bad day, you'll leave with a bruised ego. Plus, if you don't like my mama, you won't like me, either, because a lot of people think I'm like her, and I can't think of a better person to emulate.
