To My Mom on Mother’s Day

Thank you Mom for... // dreams-etc.com

(I sent this to some friends yesterday and my mom thought it was funny and told me I should post it, so… posted with permission.)

Yesterday was Mother’s Day in the US and I typically don’t acknowledge Mother’s or Father’s Day, but last year I wrote a post to my dad. So this year, I wanted to write a post for my mom, because she’s pretty awesome too.

Thank you Mom for:

// introducing me to Odyssey of the Mind in elementary school

// passing on your love of the written word

// always, always, always encouraging me to follow my dreams

// reading every word I’ve written–at least, every word I’ve written that I’ve shared with others

// not being afraid to tell me when something could use a little more work (even though I don’t always want to hear it)

// telling me toΒ just do [insert creative goal here] already

// sharing books

// your bravery

// showing me who I want to be when I’m older

// always being ready to talk when I need to

// loving me, even though I probably exasperate you sometimes (often?) and you probably think I’m weird

…… but hey, I got my weirdness from someone, so it might be from you! πŸ˜‰

Happy Mother’s Day to the best mom I could have asked for.Β

      Thank you Kayla! I think she definitely enjoyed the post, she talked about it after she read it. πŸ™‚ Isn’t it a cute mug? I bought it for years ago for Mother’s Day.
