To the person who made it possible.

here we are outside Black's BBQ

Here’s to the lady that made it all possible. Mom.  I never seem to muster up the right words or timing for writing about Mom on Mother’s Day so why not write about it on the day that she became Mom and I became, well, ME!
She is probably my biggest fan and supporter.  It meant a lot to me and I was quite a surprised when she told me that I inspired her in all the things I tried and risked.  This while she joined me on my quest to try new things and that was the year we went to Cowgirl Camp.  We weren’t the fastest or the best in riding, but we learned to do girl rodeo and barrel racing and I will always remember the nights closing the ranch bar and then putting our feet into the pool and chatting til we were sleepy.
My guess is that what motherhood is- a reciprocity.  She did such a great job that I have always known I want to be a mother.  Even though it can be exhausting and the hardest job, the payoff is you inspire them and they inspire you.  I hope I get the opportunity some day soon.  She raised me with a lot of intuition and practical sense and her own style and personality and I know that is why I am who I am today.
Thanks Anne Scott- Love, Erin Scott
