My Mom

She’s the greatest – and she’s mine!
I have the best mom. And I realize that all the time, not just on Mother’s Day. She’s the perfect combination of mother and friend. She knows when I need mothering advice, but is also someone I can goof around and be friends with (see Ocean Wars entry). I feel lucky every day to have been born to such a wonderful mother. I really do hope one day to be the kind of mother she was and is to me. Thank you, mom, for everything. I love you!
