Mother's Day

This is my mom and I on Christmas Eve, 1979.

She was so sick that day. 
Now that I'm a mom, I have a new appreciation for this picture. 
Moms don't get to call in sick.
Moms put their children's needs before their own. 
Moms are giving, selfless, and patient.
Moms love relentlessly. 

Thank you, Mom, for teaching me how to be a mama. 

It's the hardest job in the entire world,
but the most rewarding.
