ode to my mother

let's face it.... moms need more than one official day in the year to celebrate them in all their glory. being a mom is one of the hardest, most rewarding jobs in the world. 

i personally know some great moms out there-- friends, mother-in-laws, aunts, first time moms, and grandmas alike. no one, and i mean no one takes the cake like my mom. she is quite frankly one of the most amazing women i know.

my mom has taught me a thing or two. she has shown me how to have the confidence to take hardships, road blocks and challenges head on.  she is the poster child for generosity. my mom taught me early on that it is always better to give than take and that hard work and passion will get you far. her creativity is endless...and she never ceases to find new ways to show her love. this is just the beginning, people...

mom, you are the greatest... i am blessed to call you my mother and my friend. thanks for all that you do for us. your generosity and spirit shall never go unnoticed.
love you today and always!

happy mother's day.
