Happy Mother's Day

Thanks, Mom, for being my hero.
For loving and serving others, so that I would see... and learn how to do the same.
For always making life fun... dancing in the kitchen, having picnics in the backyard.
For putting your dreams on hold so you would be there every day when we got home from school,
just to hear how our day was.
For all the swim meets you drove us to... 
soccer games you sat at in the rain... 
track meets you brought me gatorade to because I forgot...
 really bad school plays and choir concerts you smiled through...
 times you hunted through the house for my favorite shirt I swore was missing...
hours you sat helping me with the homework I wanted to give up on...
 times you helped me go through your jewelry so I'd feel pretty...
 all the hours spent on the phone, sharing my joy, comforting my grief...
for reminding me amidst my breakdowns that motherhood isn't an exact science, that you do what you can with what you have from right where you're at...

Thank you.
I am the mom I am because you are the mom you are.
I love you.


Happy Mother's Day.
