HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!!!!!!!
I'd like to wish all you Mommy's and all you Mommy-to-be's out there a very Happy Mother's Day!
But most especially, I'd like to wish my own Mama a Happy Mother's Day.
Thanks for not only teaching me all the things you did, but for raising me right and with loads of love, caring and understanding. You always seem to know right when I need you, no matter the distance between us. Be it 10 minutes or 10,000 miles away.
Thank you for being the best role model in so many ways to me. You taught me by example how to be a good Mom, loyal friend, dedicated worker, and all-round decent (I think) person. To keep a promise given, always love with all my whole heart, to smile and laugh through the pain, be it physical, mental or emotional, to never give up, to understand the true meaning of sacrifice for the sake of others, and to be gracious in defeat. I've yet to meet a more genuine person than you. Some come close, but somehow, not quite the same. The beauty you have outside pales in comparison to the beauty within your heart and soul.
I've always thought that if I could be half as good a person as you are, then that would be more than most people could ever be. It's a tall order to fill, but I'm still trying!
Thanks for everything. There are not words enough to express how much I love you and admire you for all that you are. You're one special lady, today and every day.
I love you Mama....forever and ever.
