I am grateful for her example in so many ways. I am grateful for all the times she played with us, and didn't stand back and watch, for the childhood memories of her being in the Etobicoke Creek with us catching cray fish and getting dirty, and tired, and happy outside all summer. I am grateful that when I came home from school, whether it was a good day or a bad day, she was there, and she knew if it was a good day or a bad day without asking. I am grateful that I had a Mom who cared enough about me to say no sometimes, now I understand why. I am grateful for a mom who showed up, who showed up not only for the big things, but showed up for the "daily details of life." I am grateful for a mom who was just there, mentally, physically, emotionally she was and is always there, because that's what it takes to be a mom. I watched her, and I carry with me all that I have learned from her, we have an eternal bond, she taught me how to be a mom.
I also can't express to
Happy Mothers Day!
