Thank you, Mamma, for my life, for everything

This is just to say thank you to my mother for all that she's done for me, and for my son. I guess everybody feels the same way about their mother, but I know that my life would be worth a lot less if my mother wasn't a part of it. She has helped me through the worst times of my life even when she was fighting battles of her own. Her courage, endurance, and patience are awe-inspiring. If I can ever become half the person she is, life would have been worth living.

A colleague sent me the link to this video, and although I rarely ever check out YouTube, this one proved to be more than worth the time spent. And made me wish I had a daughter too. What is it they say? 'A son is a son till he finds a wife. A daughter is a daughter for life.' But well, my son is six and I don't think I'm having any more children. Sigh.

This is for you, Mamma. Thank you for making me who I am. I wish I could be a better daughter. I'll try, though.
