Today is Mother's Day. It is a day to celebrate all mothers: young, old, new, and yet-to-be. Today will be a day of joy for some, pain for others. For all of you mothers out there, I hope you know you are loved today. You are needed, you are wanted, and you are appreciated more than you will ever know.
To my own, excellent mother: Mom, I love you so much. You are my best friend. Even though I only see you a couple of times a year now, I still talk to you almost everyday. That time is precious to me, as are you. You saw me through some of my best and absolute worst moments, and you stuck by me through it all. You were always the warm, welcoming embrace I ran to when life was a little bit too tough. You are my confidant. But, most of all, you are my mother. I love you and miss you, Mom.
