'Nuff said

I love you, Mom. Thanks for teaching me, guiding me, making me laugh, laughing at me, bandaging scraped knees and bruised pride, scolding me, hugging me, putting me to bed, waking me up, loving me and helping me become who I am.

At my wedding when a group of my friends told you how much they love me you said, "She's pretty awesome, eh? She's the me I never was." And you smiled from ear to ear. I told you as we got ready that evening that I'd never seen you look more beautiful. Truth is, you're always beautiful to me.

Retro Girl - Your comments are always big hugs waiting for me in my inbox. You know what I was thinking about this morning as we walked behind a mom with her wee one slung on her back? I was thinking about how thrilled you'll be when you get the call from the agency about your child. See, the mom had short, red hair and her baby had dark hair and almond eyes. Even though we've never met you showed up in my Brooklyn day today. That's pretty special, I think.
