Ketchup With Us - Prompt #17

This week, Michele and I are talking about women in your lives who are exceptional moms. Lucky for me, I am surrounded by wonderful role models of strong, determined, passionate women. One in particular stands out to me...

Forever my cheerleader, my rock, my confidant.
She knows my mood the second she hears my voice.
A flash of her smile puts me at ease. Her silly laughter is infectious.
Gentle and full of heart with all. Determined and head-strong when needed.
Always being referred to as “my sister” by strangers who meet us.
My mom.

In 57 words or less, tell us about a special mother in your life. 
You can pick anyone you want. We won't tell.


  1. Wow! You two really do look like sisters!=)

  2. Your mom looks ridiculously young. Please steal me a sampling of whatever creams and elixirs are in her medicine cabinet the next time you visit. Oh, and tell her I said "Hi!" (That should distract her while Chris is collecting the samples.)

  3. So sweet, you do look like sisters!!

  4. This is such a sweet tribute to your mom. That is a great photo.

  5. How old is your mom? did she have you when she was like 12?

    great picture...same smile.

    I can't get the button to work, but I linked up this week.

    1. Thanks, Lance. Yes. 12. She's only 32...cause I'm 20. :)

  6. I was thinking the same thing as Lance! Wow, sisters indeed. She sounds like a wonderful mom; such a sweet poem.

    And thank you so much for making me featured writer! Woot! xo

  7. You really DO look like sisters...isn't it great when people say that?
    My mom and I even sound the same, we answer the phone and people get confused.

    I like looking like my mom (and sounding like her too), just like you, my mom has been the steady rock of my life. My cheerleader, my north star.

    I love the picture, you make a beautiful PAIR. xoxo

  9. Beautifully said and that is amazing how you do look like sisters. I hope when my daughters are older I can pass as an older sister. Sounds nice but my oldest is 10 and youngest 7, so I have a ways to go. lol. Wonderful tribute and prompt!!

  10. Holy bologna! Where I can I get your mom's genes?!? Such a great picture of the two of you and like everyone else says, you two look so much a like.

  11. I've been wanting to participate in Ketchup With Us - I'm gonna do it! Fab picture of you and your mom - my challenge will be to find a picture with my mom that she will approve!

    1. Hi Dana!

      We'd love to have you come play!!
