Have we ever discussed her Mary Poppins-esque existence?
It's hard to believe, but it has been a while since I talked about how amazing my mother is. She's so amazing in fact that some lunatic suggested making brunch for Mother's Day the day after moving into her new apartment. Crazy person!
But you would do it too if you had a mom like mine.
I recently mentioned my realization that I am, in fact, my mother's daughter. I realize it more and more every day. While I still have traces of my father, I recognize that my compassion, strength, and humor all come from my mother. So does my neuroticism about cooking and cleaning, but hey, I'll take the good with the bad.
Love you, Mama. I'm thankful for you every day.
