Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers & expectant mothers out there!
If you haven’t yet today, make sure you let the mothers in your life know that their hard work is appreciated. The job of a mother is like no other – always on call & endlessly frustrating & rewarding at the same time. I know I was a pain in the ass to my mother (especially as a teenager), so I figure a pretty big thank you is in order.
Thank you, Mom, for taking me on a cruise for my 21st birthday. For providing a loving home for my brother & me to grow up in. For intervening in our fights & reminding us that we love one another.
Thank you, Mom, for making college mandatory & not just an option. For teaching me that education is important to success. For instilling in me a love of reading, crossword puzzles & sudoku. For providing the basis of my culinary education.
Thank you, Mom, for loving & supporting me. For letting me make my own decisions. For letting me make my own mistakes. For letting me deal with the consequences on my own, thus making me a better person.
Thank you for everything. I love you!
