dear mom.

April 18, 2011

Do you know that you are so very beautiful - inside and out?

That you are the greatest thrift shopper I know?

That your cheesecake is absolutely the best thing in the world, as are your lemon bars and your bed linens and your spinach salads.

That when you are sad, I'm sad, too, because you are one of the people who always knows what to say when I'm not well.

That you have a fantastic smile and a winning sense of humor.

That you have taught me how to learn and grow from my mistakes.

That your compassion and empathy know no bounds.

That you contribute fabulousness to the universe.

That nothing makes me feel more at home than fine linens and napkins, because they remind me of you.

I love you, mama.
