This is my mom. She is beautiful. She has taught me about sacrifice. She has taught me about selflessness. She has shown me a great deal of love. She has taught me much of what I know about being a good wife. She has lead strongly by example. She has taught me almost everything I know about cooking. She has taught me about serving others. She has taught me compassion. She has shown me spiritual strength. She has been one of my biggest supporters. She has listened. She has saved me from many difficult situations. She has allowed me to spend more precious time with my E. She's been an amazing grammy. She has become my friend. She has shown me that being a mother is so much more than genetics and biology.
Today I'm lucky, because I am a mother. In as much seriousness as I could muster, I told my husband that my little E will never have to give me a Mother's Day present as long as he lives. Just the fact that he exists is a permanent present I will be grateful for forever and ever. I simply adore being a mom and have sheer gratitude for the blessing of raising one of God's extraordinary spirits.
