_ianne I honestly feel like @maredaily and I do this whenever we're having or we had a really bad/long week. There's something about this that we've always found comforting... 2d

_ianne I've told the story behind this picture once, a few years ago on my tumblr and I also posted it on the same date.
I took this picture with an Olympus at the age of 7, not knowing what I'm exactly doing, but I just liked how she looked at that moment. Remembering this day and studying this picture reminds me of how long it has been, but the number of years hasn't changed the way I've looked at her - besides having longer hair and that mole being removed, she's always been this person/the woman I aspire to be when I grow up. Until now, I don't think I've even reached half of the level she's been at this age, but when she acknowledges me, it sends me to the skies.
My childhood never felt empty and it was full of love - she and the rest of my support system made sure of that, that's why I've never felt like I'm missing something. She didn't restrict me from using my imagination and she allowed me to discover things on my own growing up, which is probably why I felt like she trusted me a lot on my own decisions. I remember nodding my head and singing along to Stevie Wonder, Anita Baker, Al Jarreau, James Ingram, Michael Franks, Kalapana, EW&F (and many more) while you listen to them, humming while writing and she'd laugh because a toothy grinned little girl with bangs is enjoying her kind of music more than nursery rhymes. Along with these memories, the excitement I used to feel whenever she would come home from work with a new book, and sometimes more than one, and I would stay up late reading it/them. I wonder if she remembers that time she grounded me when I was 12 from not coming home early and instead, I hung out with my older friends and I was reading the dictionary and memorizing capitals for 2 weeks because I'm not allowed to read her books... She was my proofreader and the Supreme Court of my writings; if it passed her liking, the confidence that shoots from within me is unbelievable because for me, she's the best and I will be, too, someday.
This morning, I hugged you while you were sleeping and I held you in tears because it feels like I'm 7 again and at the same time, my mind was filled with all of the things that we've been through and I was hoping

_ianne To the woman whose arms are resting on my shoulders in this picture, I didn't realize how much alike we are, besides our looks and features, it's also our personalities, nuances, mannerisms, being a tomboy, living a bare faced life...I have a thousand apologies and thanks for many things - Thank you for raising me with books, music, food, movies, fondness for sneakers and clean scents, the love for words and writing, photography, sports, and many, many more. I'm sorry for my shortcomings and my many faults. You've taught me to realize my own mistakes and to own up to them. I'm so sorry for not being the child you can always be extremely proud of Mom, I love you with every fiber of my being and thank you with all of me for never making me feel like I'm incomplete and that I always have to follow "the standard". #HappyMothersDay, UKS 🏻 ️ To the ends of Milky Way and back, Baby Girl 2w
