The Love Of A Mother

Sunday, May 9, 2010

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me,
but I think she enjoyed it.
[Mark Twain]

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!

But an especially happy set of wishes to the best mom out there, mine! (I may be a little biased on this one, but can you really blame me?) Seriously, I love this woman with all my heart!

She is one amazing lady, one whom, without,
I would not be the person I am today.

She's an awesome travel partner! Here we are in Rome, Italy in 2006.

Exactly 3 years ago today, Mom and I shared this day:
My college graduation, and her 21st Mother's Day.

Being a goofball runs in the family, I suppose.
But she always manages to out-do me.

Here we are on our layover in Zurich,
Swiss watches in hand and waiting for the train.

Our most recent adventure landed us in Budapest,
as you're all aware :)

The art of mothering is teaching
the art of living to children.
