Story of my childhood, basically.
Part of Belinda's Blog Everyday in May challenge, the fourth prompt is to write a thank you letter, to anyone for anything. I picked Mom.
Her birthday was the other day and in honor of Mothers Day, it seemed just right.
So thanks Mom.
Thanks for supporting all my crazy ideas. Driving me to ballet class, music lessons, tennis practice, gymnastics, spending hours in freezing ice rinks for ice time.
Thanks for always telling me to "look it up" when I asked what a word meant, no matter how much it annoyed me and no matter how much homework I was trying to crank out.
Thanks for never telling me that I couldn't do something and for never telling me not to pursue my dreams.
Thanks for listening to all my travel stories and looking at all my photos, even when I'm sure it got old after a while.
Thanks for running with me when I was home, and pushing me to go further and faster.
Thanks for taking in Grover when I came home and spoiling him with turkey bits on Thanksgiving, even though he sheds all over the house.
Thanks for showing me, with Dad, what real love and strong marriages look like.
Thanks for giving me and my sisters a safe and happy place to grow up, even if we didn't always get along and even though I wasn't always an easy kid to manage.
Thanks for being the best Mom a girl could ask for.
