Mother’s Day

I have an amazing mother, one who has always believed in me, always supported me, always told me I could be who I wanted to be. She didn’t just mouth the words, though; she lived them. She went back to school to get a degree in journalism. For part of her degree, she had to take a foreign language, and I treasure the memories of getting up early to help her with her flash cards. She went back to school again when I went to college, and it was lots of fun commuting with her and even taking a class together.

Today is not just Mother’s Day; it’s also her birthday (29 again!).

She’s still here, still supporting me, even though I live far, far away now. I can only hope I’m as good a mom to my kids as she still is to me.

I love you, Mom.

  1. aww! That’s such a sweet, tender tribute. 🙂

    I’m not a mommy myself, but I enjoy wishing Happy Mother’s Day to all my friends who are moms! Virtual flowers, chocolate and maid service for all! 😀

    The body ages, the mind doesn’t have to.

    Thank you. I love you, too.
