My first Mother's Day! I am looking forward to a relaxing day spent with my family. My one goal: I hope to take a nap.
To my Mama: Thank you for taking care of me and for nursing me when I was a baby. You have always been there when I needed you the most. You cuddled me when I was small and you held my hand while I learned to stand on my own. You were there to kiss away the hurt when I stumbled, and your shoulder has always been the best to lean on when I have been sad. You are supportive and caring and you remember to laugh. When I have some exciting news, you are still one of the first people I want to tell. Thank you for loving me and being my Mama. Happy Mother's Day to you!
