Happy Mother’s Day! May 7, 2005

I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to my mom and to all the mothers out there.

The older I get the more I realize how much my mom has done for me. As a kid I appreciated what I saw her doing for me — the sacrifices and the love — but I didn’t really understand the full story (and I still don’t know the half of it). I was talking with her in the kitchen this weekend, and she was retelling some of the stories from when I was a little kid and what she did (and didn’t do) to make things happen for me. I was amazed by how oblivious I was as a kid, but she was all the while working to keep me straight, to help me get to where I am, and to prepare me for where I am going.

As much as mothers may get on our nerves, we owe a lot to them — at least I know I owe a lot to my mom. When I think back to times when I felt the most annoyed by my mom, they were invariably times when she pushed me to be the best that I could be and enabled me to excel. I truly appreciate her effort and her love.

Thanks, Mom.

Happy Mother’s Day!
