Grateful Sundays

This week I am grateful for my Mother.  (As cliche as it might be on Mother's Day - it's true!)

I love Gardening Mom and feel so grateful to have a mom who I have such respect and admiration for.  She is the smartest woman I've ever known, and she has accomplished so much.

I have always been lucky in that my mom is truly my best friend - she is most often the first person I look to for advice, the first person I want to tell exciting news to, and the first I want to cry to.  We have a mutual respect that not all mothers and daughters have between each other, and for that I feel blessed.

My mother has never handled me with baby gloves and does not hesitate to tell me when I am wrong.  She is like looking in a mirror that is constantly encouraging, but also glaringly honest.

We are not "mushy" or overtly affectionate, but I love my mother and I know she loves me.  For me, true success in life would not be complete without her satisfaction and pride for how I turned out and the way in which I choose to live my life, and I hope she will always be proud to call me her daughter.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
