Happy Mother's Day!

Although the day doesn't officially start for another 2.5 hours, I wanted to wish all of the mothers out there a wonderful, happy Mother's Day! This goes out to human moms, dog moms, cat moms, and all other kinds of moms too. This is a day to celebrate somebody that has made an impact on your life in some way. Of course, it is meant to celebrate your mother - the person that gave you life, that nurtured you when you needed it the most, and that raised you into the human being that you are today. For me, this person is incredibly special. I am SO very lucky to have the world's best mother (feel free to disagree . . . but I would debate your arugments any day!). Not only is she my mom, but she is also my best friend. I can talk to my mom about anything, and know that she will provide me with honest, heartfelt advice. Growing up, she taught me about strength, independence, perseverence and the importance of educating yourself. She demonstrated that a strong, independent woman CAN succeed - in life and in business.

She raised me to be honest and ethical, and she raised me with a sense of responsibility. I see so much of who I am today in the person that she is. I couldn't be prouder of that if I tried. There is nobody else in the world that I want to be like as much as my mother. I'm not one of those women that shudders when somebody tells them that they're like their mother - I beam with pride. My mother instilled in me values that will take me far in life, and that make me a reasonable person (well, most of the time - hormones can mess with that!).

So Mother's Day is all about celebrating my mom, and thanking her for everything she's given me over the years. Not the physical gifts, but the things that I will carry with me forever. Threads of my mom, woven into the fabric that is me.

Thank you Mom, I love you always and forever.
