Becoming a mom on January 21, 1986 completed me. I am blessed and honored to be Brin's mom. I wanted to share her lovely face, which is home to a beautiful soul, on this day to express my love and appreciation to Brin for the experience of being her mom. I am grateful for it all: the challenges, the celebrations, the life lessons—the love.
This is also my Photoshop artwork submission for Patti Digh's new book Creative is a Verb!
If you're interested you can contribute your motherly (or fatherly, or unparently) wisdom for Patti to share with her daughter Emma for graduation.
If you're a mom—happy day. If you can hug or call your mom—you're extra blessed. If she's no longer here—love her long distance, she'll know. If life circumstance separated you—I hope you're able to thank her for your life and consider forgiveness.
And blessings to the Mother of us all—Earth.
Laura, for giving me a daughter who loved to boogie down our favorite country back roads laughing like loons while ruining the music of AC_DC, LedZep and Def Leppard and who sometimes insisted we clean up litter on the shore before we got to go fish and who dared to challenge me to see who could stuff the most Cheetoes in our mouth at one time (I still say I won kid) and who grew up to be a wonderful young woman that we will always be proud of, I will always be in your debt. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart
