In a card my wrote to me about a month before she passed on she wrote "Thanks for being you". I read this whenever I'm having a bad day, whenever my kids are giving me a hard time or whenever I need reminder that being me is completely okay. My mom was and continues to be an amazing mom, she's who gave me patience (although I don't have a lot of it), she's the one who gave me strength and a sense of adventure to try new things. She is always here.
So today, I want to wish all the mamas a Happy Mothers Day, today is for you, you care for your babies, young and old, you are their mother, their nurse, their teacher and their therapist. You listen, you love and you make everything better by simple words, big hugs and tired smiles.
