Happy Mother's Day!

Mom - I know you're traveling the world now, doing what you love to do - so, I thought I would post a Mother's Day message for you here! I found this wonderful poem that reminds me of you:

You are my mother and my friend,
Which is unusual.
Somehow our characters must blend:
Your wisdom and my will.

I turn, and you are there for me;
I speak, you understand.
I feel cared for, but also free;
You lead but don't command.

I'm fortunate that I was born
To someone just like you;
I love you, not just as my mom,
But for what you are and do.

Mom - you are an amazing woman, and don't you ever forget it! Last year I gave you a son in-law; this year I'll give you a PhD thesis! Hehe!
