…for kissing me goodnight, and making sure I brushed my teeth before heading out in the morning. For snuggling with me just because. For cheering me on. For hanging my artwork on the refrigerator. For bandaging my scrapes, for braiding my hair. For loving me even through my teenage years. For telling me I could, for reminding me when I shouldn’t. For teaching me kindness, and instilling in me good manners. For making me laugh, and for wiping my tears. For showing me that strength is sometimes quiet, and grace is a process. For your daily iced coffee with a post-it note of wisdom. For sending me care packages even as an adult. For the unconditional, for the no-holds-barred. For always showing up, even when no one else did.
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom.
