To a mother who wasn’t afraid of living — who did backflips off the diving board and always had ice cream in the freezer. To a mother who filled the room with her smile and abounding energy —
“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.”
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Remembering a special lady on this special day.
Thank you to all the mothers who guide us along the way, who bring out the very best in us.
