Mother's Day

This is the woman who rocked me to sleep, who wiped away my tears, who helped me with my homework, who drove me to dance class, girl scouts, and sports practice. This is the woman who laughed with me, cried with me, and put up with my crap when I was a teenager. This is the woman who loved me unconditionally every moment of my life, even when I didn't deserve it. She was there for all of the important and unimportant moments of my life. She has been my friend, my confidant, my teacher, my nurturer, my nurse, my advocate, and my biggest fan.

This woman is my mother.

Mom, I love you for so many reasons, but mostly, for always being in my corner and on my side no matter what. My kids are so very lucky to have you as their grandmother, and I will forever be grateful that you are my mother.

Happy Mother's Day!
