In case I have not said it enough, Thank you. You have been there for me from the beginning, and you continue to be a positive, supportive force in my life. I have tried to imagine a time in my life when you were not there with a ready smile or that look. You know the one. The one that says, “Girl, you must be out of your mind.” I laugh at that but recognize, even then, your eyes are warm and shine with hope and truth, and love – the unconditional kind. The kind that fills you to the point of being so full that love spills on to others. I feel loved, know love, and have the capacity to love others. Mom, in case I have not said it enough, I love you.
