My Mom

Here's a tribute to my mom, a day late.
One of the earliest memories of my mom is sitting on her lap when she was wearing pink flowered cotton shirt that was so soft. She smelled like baby powder. It was a very comforting memory for me because I felt so safe and loved. My mom has always made me feel safe and loved. Home has been my refuge from the hard world and mom is one of the key reasons for that. Mom loves each of her children unconditionally and yet different. She would do anything for each of us. She hurts when we hurt, she worries for us and with us, she celebrates with us and is extremely proud of us. Mom raised 4 very different children and was rewarded with a grown up close family that loves and adores each other. Mom is a reason that we are close.
I love my mother dearly.

Beautiful...I couldn't have said it better myself.
I know you spoke for all 4 of us when you wrote this. I couldn't have asked for a better family.
love you,
