I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend, including a very happy Mother's Day! I honored our relationship in a form of slight self-humiliation, sharing a stunning photo of mom and me (age 7) at what is possibly the height of 90s awkwardness. She has a perm, I have a bowl cut, and we both have some sweet glasses, which are once again considered trendy. Go figure. It's not beautiful, but it's love.
My mom is pretty amazing. I feel bad because I forgot her card on my desk this weekend while we were in Virginia visiting her mom, so this post is for her. She is brilliant and thoughtful. She has been though things that would break most people, and still she continues to dedicate her life to helping others. Thank you for teaching me to be strong, and to have grace and a clear mind under pressure. I still want to be you when I grow up (even though technically, I already am.) I love you!
