Before Mother's Day ends today, I wanted to say that my mother-daughter relationship with my mom is wonderful, and I can't thank her enough for putting up with me through my awful, awful teenage years. I still apologize to her for the strange things I did...and that was 15 years ago! :-) She tells me not to worry about it, because with all luck, "what goes around comes around", and my toddler son will be apologizing to me when he's in his mid-30s as well. hee hee!

I wanted to thank my mom for being one of the greatest listeners I have ever known. I have not met anyone who can give 100% undivided attention, ask all the right questions, actively listen...all while making dinner and feeding the cat. I have some great friends, and husband, in my life, and I feel loved by them...but the listening and understanding that they give me probably can never be fully matched, on an on-going basis, like what my mom provided me...and still provides to this day. What a gift! I hope to be able to provide this gift to my son as well: the feeling that he is the most important person each and every day, and what he says, thinks and feels matters to me.
