Happy Mother’s Day

08/05/2011 § 5 Comments

My mother, me, my grandmother.  Taken in 1984.

Me and my mother on my second birthday.

While I’m just getting this in under the wire in EST, I am somewhat comforted by the fact that my mother is on the west coast and that I technically have a few hours yet to express to her what an amazing mother, role model and friend she is to me.  My grandmother’s daughter is my greatest source of strength, wisdom and sarcasm, who can always be counted on to have a witty response and plain M&Ms at the ready.  She introduced me to Auntie Mame, she let me get highlights at the scandalous age of 13, she took away the pager I secretly got without her permission when I was 16, and she wonders what the purpose of this blog is (Mom, I’m not sure I know, really).  I would not be the woman I am today, were it not for her.  I am sure that she would not be the woman she is, were it not for my grandmother.  Every day I try to live up to the examples these women have set for me, and I hope to come close to the mark.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
