I've learned that the perfect mother doesn't exist.
We are all just women, in love with our children, trying to do our very best.
You always said, "One day you'll understand."
And you were right.
As my children leave their baby and toddler years behind,
I understand that I have so much learning yet to do.
But if there is one thing I am already certain of,
it is how glad I am that you are my mom.
Happy Mother's Day.
