I have this mom, the only mom I will ever have. She taught me perseverance and work ethic. She doesn't seem to hold a grudge against those who have hurt her. She taught me that no matter what your life held as a child that you could do better, not perfect but better. Her antics in life still make me laugh even though she usually doesn't see the humor in them. I will always remember her telling me that there is no such word as can't. If you want to do something, no matter what it was, you can. This is so true on so many levels.
I don't remember her laughter that often as I grew up but she does now. That is what is important. She laughs now.
Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers out there....the most important job there is.
