It's Mother's Day and I am in Columbia, finishing up the semester (aka chained to my desk). I'm missing spending Mother's Day with my mom, so I thought I would do a little tribute to her here. If I could, I would shout it from the top of a mountain. But I don't have a mountain...
My mom has been so much more to me than just a mother.
She has been my best friend.
She travelled literally half way around the world to visit me.
(we look a little related here, don't we?)
She has picked me up when I am low.
She supports me and pushes me to pursue my dreams.
She has been the rock for our family, day after day, for almost 30 years.
And she believes in us, even when we have a hard time believing in ourselves.
She is also a grandma.
(with one VERY large hand, apparently...)
And my sister is a mom.
To a very lucky, and very CUTE little guy.
And I feel like the luckiest daughter, sister, and aunt in the whole wide world.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom! And Happy Mother's Day to my Mags. Here's to many more years of going on vacations together, laughing (and probably crying) together, and you listening to me blather on incessantly about things that don't matter to anyone but me.
