On Mother's Day

I remember a time when I thought that being like my mom was the worst fate possible. I shuddered at the thought of being anything like her and vowed that I would never let it be so.

As I grew up, though, the inevitable happened; I turned more and more into my mother with each passing day. Her laugh, her sense of humor, her ability to find delight in the small things, her love of family, her passion to make a difference, her selflessness - all of the qualities I've grown to admire in her are rubbing off on me... and I couldn't be happier about it!

I love you, Mommy! Happy Mother's Day!
