Tribute to my Mother

My mother is a beautiful woman. She's a teacher in a small elementary school and I got an email from one of her colleagues recently telling me how much she loves and appreciates my mom. I hear that a lot. I didn't fully appreciate my mother when I was younger. In my teen and college years we fought frequently, but as I've gotten older I've really enjoyed getting to know her as a fellow woman and friend. I don't live near her, but we talk every saturday morning, sometimes for hours. She loves and encourages me and offers the kind of wisdom that a woman with four children and 36 years of marriage can offer. She always has a big hug ready for her friends and family and her mexican food is to die for. Her love and faith in God has really kept our family together. Today I am immensely thankful for my beautful mother.

Happy Mother's Day to you wonderful moms out there. I wish you peace, love and joy. Thank you for all you give to your children, spouses and families.
