Meet my mom, Tracey.

My mother is strong, brilliant, and beautiful. She is an amazing mom, intelligent worker, wonderful tennis player, generous friend, and all around incredible woman. She is Godly and allows His light to shine through her and impact all the people around her. She is kind and compassionate, funny and light-hearted, hard-working and determined, and the list goes on and on. Bottom line, I was blessed tremendously when I got her as my mom!

What I admire most about her is…

The grace, poise and strength with which she handles herself. She is always doing for others and she never complains about anything. She juggles a family, full-time job, athletics, and friends so gracefully. You will never see her put herself above others and she is always looking to how she can be of service to others. My mom also has an inner strength that is inspiring to see. Through the highs and lows of life, she is strong and poised. She lives out the attributes of a Godly woman and I am so inspired daily by all she does and all she is.

My favorite thing to do with her is…

Although I love long walks or lake weekends with my mom, my favorite thing is the days we spend watching, Say Yes to the Dress, in our PJs. We both are busy, so it is those moments that we can ‘do nothing’ together that I appreciate the most.

Ways we are most similar…

My mom and I are both planners. We both like to have a sense of control over the situation and the season of life that we are in. In addition, we are both a little sentimental. She is the one that I can always count on to be crying at a Hallmark commercial with me. She has the most tender heart and has taught me how to love deeply and care for people fiercely.

Ways we are most different…

My mom is definitely smarter than I am, the smartest woman I know actually. The ways she looks at things and can problem-solve is amazing. She can step outside of a situation and look at it with a greater perspective. I am a little more rash in jumping to decisions and conclusions. She is my go-to for all of my questions (especially as I try to figure out this whole ‘adulting’ thing ☺).

I think our mother-daughter relationship is so special because…

My mom is my best friend. With her, I can be vulnerable and share what I am really feeling. And contrary to some other responses I may get, she is honest and open with me, able to tell me if I am wrong. Our relationship is authentic and sincere. She holds me accountable in all areas of my life and pushes me to see the potential in myself when even I have lost sight of it. 

Meet my daughter, Sydney.

Sydney is one of the most beautiful people I know- inside and out. She has the sweetest spirit and heart for others. She has one of the best work ethics and her desire to do everything with excellence with a spirit of humility makes me so honored to call her my daughter. She is athletic, intelligent, funny, loving and an incredibly loyal daughter, friend and sister.

What I admire most about her…

I admire her strength, determination, drive and perseverance to achieve whatever goal she sets for herself or whatever cause she has committed to. She is one of the hardest workers I know but balances her obligations with fun, friends and family. I aspire to have a heart for others like she has. I admire her love and devotion to Jesus, her family and her friends who she loves with her whole heart.

My favorite thing to do with her…

Traveling, playing tennis, watching UGA and Falcons football, laughing, hanging out watching TV, going for a walk and hanging at the lake. Sydney is a joy to do anything with!

Ways we are most similar …

We are both planners, rule followers and worriers. We both love Jesus and our family with all that we have. We are both loyal, friendly and sincere. We both take our responsibilities seriously and are reliable. We are both honest and try to do the right thing. We have the same sense of humor and love to laugh.

Ways we are most different…

Sydney is brave, fearless and an adventure seeker. I am a chicken. She is a better tennis player. She is more forgiving than I am.

I think our mother-daughter relationship is so special because…

Sydney is easy to love and cherish and always has been. We have mutual respect and are open and honest with each other. We are mother and daughter but as she has matured into an incredible woman she is also one of my best friends.
