So today is Mother's Day, and I'm a couple thousand miles away from mine. I just called her, though. I love technology!
My mom is one of the kindest people I know. She has a very tender heart. She is one of the few people I know who has seen a lot of the heartache in the world yet has not lost her innocence.
I love spending a day with my mom tooling around town. Neither one of us get bored with each other.
She also has a lot of "mom-isms" that my sister & I regularly find coming out of our own mouths. She has a song for everything. Vino says that I do, too. Must have picked that up from her. :) She will talk to anyone in line at the grocery store. It used to embarrass me, but I've grown out of that.
I have such good childhood memories, and most of them are because of her. I couldn't have picked a better mom for myself.
I love you, Mom! Happy Mother's Day!
