Happy Mother’s Day
Happy (early) Mother’s Day! I’ve been blessed to experience the love and care of my mom. Mom was there to bandage my scrapes and read me a bedtime story. As a kid, I would come home from school to the smell of yummy chocolate chip cookies or baked ziti – all lovingly baked by Mom.
As I grew in height and in years, I learned to see my parents as ‘normal’ people and not just their parental roles. Graduating from college, getting married and moving away solidified that distance, but deepened my respect and gratitude for them. It hasn’t been perfect, but it’s been a good journey.
Thanks Mom for supporting my decisions in life, for making sure I never skipped a meal, and for your good-natured humor over the years.
If you have or have had a special mother/mother figure in your life, be sure to show them your appreciation – not just on Mothers’ Day, but in the day-to-day! 🙂
Mom, thank you for all that you taught me. Love you lots!
