As I look back…

As I look back on my life I find myself wondering, did I remember to thank you for all that you have done for me? For all of the times you were by my side to help me celebrate my successes and accept my defeats? Or for teaching me the value of hard work, good judgement, courage, and honesty? I wonder if I’ve ever thanked you for the simple things…. The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we’ve shared? If I have forgotten to express my gratitude for any of these things, I am thinking of you now….. and I am hoping that you’ve known all along how much you are loved and appreciated. – Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
