I'm not big on mother's day but I could hardly let this day pass without recognizing my mother.
Mom, you amaze me. I wouldn't be the person I am today without your influence and the stable foundation you gave me to build on. Your support and enthusiasm for my writing, and my life in general, strengthen me. You may not have been able to teach me singing or grammar (not for lack of your trying) but your influence is felt in all aspects of my life. Thank you for being strong, thank you for being who you are, and thank you for putting up with me. Happy Mother's Day.
