Say Thank You

Good morning! Today is May 10th and also Mother's day. If you are reading this, that means you are alive. If you are alive, that means you have a mother who is responsible for that. Take some time today to say thank you to the wonderful woman who gave you life. 


Good morning! I just wanted to say thank you! You are, without a doubt, the most incredible person that I know. From the day you brought me home from the hospital and the 18 years, 10 months and 28 days since then you have done everything in your power to take care of me. I'm not quite sure if you realize just how much of myself is composed of pieces of you that I have picked up through the years. From the little things to the big things, I am your daughter through and through. 

Thank you for teaching me how to fold my towels. Thank you for showing me what good music is. Thank you for giving me an incredible work ethic. Thank you for my handwriting. Thank you for my green eyes. Thank you for the birthmark on my shoulder that you have too. Thank you for my obsessive organizational tendencies. Thank you for my love of tattoos and the crazy pain tolerance I have. Thank you for my love of farmers markets and Sunday at the antique malls. Thank you for showing me what its like to be an independent woman who can take care of herself. Thank you for showing me kindness and teaching me compassion for others. Thank you for showing me how to be a lady who can hold her own opinion. Thank you for my love of line-dried laundry. Thank you for all the motivation over the past 19 years. Thank you for the best 10th luau birthday ever. Thank you for my love of vinyl records. Thank you for my appreciation of good cake. Thank you for going to all of the football and basketball games to watch me cheer even though you hate all sports that aren't baseball. Thank you for my love of baseball. Thank you for loving my best friends as much as I do. Thank you for spending the day in Lucas Oil when I didn't actually get to perform. Thank you for my love of concerts and the ability  to appreciate live music. Thank you for my love of comics. Thank you for my obsessive TV show habits. Thank you for bringing home that first season of Gilmore. And of Veronica. And of Studio 60. And of Buffy. And of every other show that I have undoubtedly binged over the many years. Thank you for encouraging every endeavor of mine and for never telling me that I can't do something. Thank you for taking me to see my favorite band from backstage.
