There is something about becoming a mother myself that has deepened my bond with my mother even more. I think it's the fact that I more fully understand her sacrifice that she made for her family. Once you're in the trenches, as it were, there is band of brothers (or sisters) effect. We have an understanding of our roles that only other mothers can fully appreciate. So on this day of Mothers, I can truly say that I love and appreciate my mother more fully. Thanks for being the stubborn, task oriented, hard working, adventurer that you are mom. You and dad have raised a solidly loving family, and I can't thank you enough for your sacrifice!
