- Mother’s Day Reflection
The Mater is a terrific mother. She has been for my entire life and I know that kind of thing does not just happen. I know that more now that I have been a father for 20 years. Being a good parent means being engaged, working at it, knowing it is a role that does not go away.
It has never gone away with my mother.
When I think of her now and what her legacy is, it is impossible not to think of her grandchildren who love her and adore her. And she loves and adores them.
It seems to me that they can do no wrong in her eyes and, likewise, she can do no wrong in theirs.
They love their grandma, no doubt.
But remember, kids, my sisters and I were here first. She’s our mom before she’s your grandma!
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. You have been all a kid could ask for…
… and so much more.
