Okay....Happy Mums Day!

Dear Mudda,

Well I guess I just wanted to say Happy Mother's Day!!
I hope you know how proud I am of you - for being the best mum & daughter & sister & friend & dog owner (notice I didn't say trainer!) in the world!
I meant what I said in my thesis when I said you are the strongest person I know. It's funny, I was thinking the other day about role models & what not & I thought so many people look to people like Princess Di or Mother Theresa or Taylor Swift or whoever but when it all comes down to it - and I know this will sound a bit cliche - I look to you. Because life kicks you around & you get knocked down but you keep getting back up. And above everything else, you love your kids, no matter what's going on - and that's what counts, that's what you've always done!
Thanks for everything Mumstink, and even though you feel like you're trying to carry all this on your own sometimes - you're not alone!
I love you lots


I must be doing something right then :)

Tahni, that was a beautiful tribute to your Mum! I also think that she is one of the strongest, most loving people!
Happy Mothers Day Michelle!

Just being there for your children makes it right. That's better than any store bought card any day. I will bet that filled you with a quiet sense of pride.
