Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!

May 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Dear Mommy,

Thank you for the dimples. You didn’t give me just one, you gave me four!

Thank you for always being my biggest admirer, even when I wasn’t feeling very pretty.

Thank you for always being my advocate for my dreams and convincing Dad to let me go to my art high school to study painting and then talking him into letting me run away to LA to attend USC.

Thank you for driving to Virginia every day for work even though we lived in Baltimore so I could continue to attend my art high school.

Thank you for always making my favorite foods whenever I am home. My favorite dinners are always the ones you create.

Thank you for always listening to me and letting me feel as if I can talk about anything with you.

Thank you for being so welcoming of Wayne. From the first time you met him, you were ready to love him and accept him as family. You even knew before I did that I would want to date him.

Thank you loving me even when I was an asshole for so many years during puberty. I know I didn’t act like someone you would like until after I went away to college.

Thank you for always being a wonderful mom.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!

PS. Thanks for posing in pictures with me even though I always made ridiculous faces.

PPS. Thanks for driving to Long Island even though we lived in Baltimore on a weekly basis so I could attend my art high school, Dad.
