I consider myself very lucky to have such a special relationship with my mother. She is my best friend and unlike anyone I’ve ever known. Kind and generous to a fault, I haven’t met a single person who hasn’t loved her instantly. If I could tell you one thing about my mother that not everyone knows it’s that despite the fact that she appears to be everything that is good and pure… she’s probably got one of the sickest senses of humor of anyone I’ve ever met. It’s wonderful and there’s nothing that I love more than laughing with her.
Leaving her career as a pharmacist behind, she decided to stay at home to raise me and my 2 younger brothers. During that time she sewed us clothing, baked amazing food and spent countless hours nurturing our individual selves. She encouraged us in everything we did. She taught us the difference between right and wrong. She was a safe place wherever we were in the world.
So this post is dedicated to her in honor of her birthday.
