happy mother's day

i love mom's. everything about them. if your a mom, i love you. and i love your mom, and her mom. but more than anything, i love MY mom. she's the best. and she's perfect. her life is so utterly consumed by taking care of those around her, and i think i need her just as much today as i did when i was a little kid. i can't wait to be a mom so i can see if some of her goodness has rubbed off on me.

mom, i love you. and appreciate you, and look up to you. thank you for exceeding my expectations of what a mother should be. i hope my baby can adore me as half as much as i do you.

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving

You'll be the best mom to have ever walked the earth. Everyone knows that's your calling Laura.
