Whenever life seems to give nothing more than lemons, and I fail to be able to make lemonade or to pass my tequila shot with them, I talk to my mom. She doesn't always make things better, but she makes me feel better.
Whenever life is sweet and good and rosy and wonderful, I talk to my mom. She doesn't always screw it up back to gray, but she makes me enjoy the moment and savor the experience.
Whenever -- wherever, á la Shakira, I talk to my mom. She's my lil' pick-me-up, even when I don't need pick-upping.
I suggest you call your mom right now. And if you can't, call mine.
I love you, Mami! <3
