Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, my own personal angel.
I totally lucked out when God gave me to you. Thank you for teaching me to love unconditionally, to be loved, and to love who I am. Thank you for teaching me about perseverance and how to dust oneself off when life knocks you down. Thank you for teaching me about joy in the simple things…Like fresh picked strawberries, or swimming out to the deep end, even if you’re scared, because the water is cooler there, and there’s nothing like floating on your back in the middle of the ocean.
Happy Mother’s Day to my Grammie, who listened to me tell stories where Princesses rode giant panthers through dense forests, and for helping me spy a leprechaun when out for a walk. Thank you for always having an ear, or a story to tell of her own.
Thank you both for teaching me to always find time to dance – to throw up my arms and spin and it’s OK if you’ve got two left feet, there’s Grace in that.
