Motherly Love

This is my mom. As you can see, she is kind of, well, awesome. And not just because she is holding what appears to be the world's largest (empty) bottle of wine. Here are some other reasons:

She makes me laugh.

She still talks to me after I told her her I hated her about three billion times during adolescence.

She does things for me that I know she doesn't want to do, just because.

She is wicked smart and could do anything she wanted to, and chose to make motherhood her full-time profession.

She taught me an appreciation for beautiful things and good manners but was not above driving a Delta 88 when the need arose.

She is beautiful.

Until I became a mom myself, I never fully appreciated what moms have to give up (or, in turn, what they get in return) in exchange for motherhood.

Thank you, Mom, for what you gave up for us. It hasn't gone unnoticed.



Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there, the true unsung heroes of the world.
