Happy Mother's Day
This time of year is bittersweet. I happily celebrate my son, Ben, for making me Mom. He is the work of art of which I am most proud. I think about my Mom, Arlene, and her love of her family and her limitless creativity. My mother-in law, Maxine, was so sweet, kind, and loving and never hesitated to be there for me. Growing up there was Mrs. Duffy, our neighbor. She is like a second Mom to me and was a dear friend to my Mom. I am fortunate to have had these women in my life to nurture and care for and about me. Their influence in my life have made me a better person. It takes time to gain wisdom and soldier on through life. Thank you Mom, Mom Coder, and Mrs. Duffy. You are and always will be a part of me. Happy Mother's Day.
