Giving Thanks: My Mom.

This is one of my favourite pictures of my mom and me. I think I appreciate it now even more that I have a daughter of my own. My mom means everything to me. She understands me better than I do sometimes. She sees things in me that I think nobody notices. And when I don't call her back she doesn't get pissed off at me. She also doesn't hold it against me when I'm so wrapped up in my own stuff that I forget to ask her about her stuff. I wish we got to see more of each other. I wish I had more energy to put into our relationship. I'm just at the beginning of learning how to be a mom. She's a wonderful guide on how to make sure your kids know they are loved. I'm lucky and blessed that she is my mother (and not a snort).
