Happy Mother’s Day

To all the mothers it may concern:Have a wonderful day celebrating one of the hardest, most trying and thankless jobs in the world.
I am thinking of the great many women that helped shape my life and the woman I’ve become.
Mom: You are a special person, you are resilient and despite the adversity you’ve overcome you still have a wonderful capacity for love.

Nana: Though you are gone you are still the most influential woman in my life. I cherish the time I had with you and will not forget the things you taught me.

Nana comforting me, I was so unhappy – must’ve been that awful hair!
Dad: For so many years you had to be both mother and father. You did a great job, I’m thankful you wanted to tackle the job.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
