Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. I chose not to become a mother, a choice I’m very happy with, but I appreciate all the sacrifices and hard work other women go through to raise children.

I spent the day with my mom and had a very nice time. First, we went to brunch, then a little shopping at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, then a neighborhood home tour. The weather was crisp and windy, but sunny and clear so it was nice to walk around the ‘hood and enjoy the sunshine.

I have a lot of admiration and respect for my mom. Sure, she has driven me crazy in the past (and still does occasionally), but I think she’s a great mom. So to my mom I say thanks. Thanks for raising me to be an independent, opinionated person. Thanks for instilling great values in me. Thanks for all the sacrifices you made for me over the years. Most of all, thanks for being my mom and loving me unconditionally.

  1. Thank you so much for the very nice comments. I guess I missed that you were independent and opinionated!!! Thanks so much for the time we spent together today – brunch was quite yummy and home tour fun. Wait – I’d better save these comments for the official “thank you” note which will be written in the next few days – or the ghost of Grammie will rise from the bookcase and haunt me until I do!

    Seriously – thanks for being such a great kid and not giving me too many gray hairs. And with my maturing age I’ve obviously forgotten anything really bad you did anyway!

    Well said, I love my mom also, yet have little desire to be one. Sounds like you had a wonderful day with you’re mom and she’s lucky to have such a caring daughter. I just sent my mom a card.
