in a few short days it will be time to celebrate mommy day. i've always asked my mom if i could get special treatment on this day too because, afterall, she wouldn't be a mommy without me. she laughs at my annual joke and then waves me away to get her another cup of french press coffee and piece of dark chocolate. my mother is a very special woman. she is an amazing wife and best friend to her husband dale, a supportive and loving mother of three, and a friend to many. so here's to my mommy and all the other mommies out there-happy mother's day! you are loved!
