On mother’s day, we celebrate Mom.
We talk a lot here at Carley’s Angels about “Always Smile”, Carley’s Inspirational attitude. And we get so many messages to back it up. People sharing stories from all over the globe about how Carley’s story has changed their life.
Well as I’m sure you know (especially if you’ve seen kiss and Cry) Carley’s story had more than one character. And yes you’ve guessed it, the one we are going to celebrate today is May, Carley’s Mom. And we are going to do that by sharing a passage from Carley’s Blog Called “Mom <3”

Today for one of the first times my mom said I could go out with my friends, but I guess I didn’t really understand her interpretation of “go out with my friends”. My friends Carley M, Jill, and Denzelle have planned for a long time that we would go shopping for our grad trip together. Although I’m sick now and can’t go on the trip, we still all wanted to do this together. So I assumed I would go with them to the mall and come back with them but my mom said no way. My mom had her mind set on coming. I was a little confused, I thought she had agreed to let me go. But my mom meant that, yes, I could go, but she would be coming too.
I was pretty annoyed. I felt like I was back in Kindergarten when my mom found it hard to leave my side. I quickly realized that this was the only way I was going to be able to go, so I rolled my eyes and got into the car. When we got to the mall, I met with Denzelle, Jill, and Carley M, and my mom did some of her own shopping. After about an hour I started to get pretty tired and my cough was getting strong.
That’s the moment I was thankful my mom was there. I called her to ask her what store she was in.
She responded with, “Is it time to leave?”
I said, “Well if you want to,” but she knew exactly what I meant, even though I didn’t want to admit it, I was tired and needed to go home.
Evidently, my mom is always right, and even though I thought she was being crazy and overprotective, she was right.
My mom has been the one primarily with me through this, she’s basically turned into a nurse. And although we may be starting to get sick of each other, there are no words to explain how grateful I am to have her. She is working extremely hard to try and make things as easy as possible for everyone around her, and I sometimes don’t give her the credit she deserves. She wakes up early in the morning to get a smoothie made for me, a freshly cooked breakfast and cappuccino, not to mention that she still makes sure to keep my little sister’s daily routine exactly the same. She also keeps up with things that need to get done at work, even though she’s not in the office. I have no idea how she does it. To say she’s a superwoman would be an understatement. Working mom, Olympian, amazing smoothie maker, and definitely the most loving woman on this earth. The amount she has gone through in the last month is just not fair. But she has been incredibly strong for me, and I can’t thank her enough. After all, I wouldn’t be here today if she hadn’t taken me to emergency when she did. The surgeon said if she didn’t take me when she did, I would have asphyxiated in my sleep. My mom saved me. And I love her so much.
