On Mothers’ Day, I wanted to take a moment to thank the most influential person in my life: Mom. For the first half of my childhood, I was raised by a single mom. Not only has this made my mom and me very close, but it also taught me how to be a strong, confident woman. I will always be grateful to my mother for all the wonderful things and experiences in life that she offered me. But I am most grateful to have gotten to spend so much time with one of the most wonderful people I know.
For most of my life my mother was the sun around which I orbited. Becoming a mother myself, that center has shifted. Now we both orbit around a much brighter sun, but my mother is still the same brilliant life force that has nurtured me for 35+ years.
I love you mom. Happy Mothers Day!
