Happy mother’s day Mom!

I have to saw, I have an awesome mother.  Sure, there have been and probably will continue to be times that we don’t see eye-to-eye, but never the less, I love my mother.

Of particular note, this year she qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon.  Not only did she run the marathon, but she ran it is a great time.  I was a little bummed that I couldn’t be there to stand out on Comm Ave near my grandparent’s house like we used to do on marathon day when we were kids.

My mother does lots of cool things.  She has done some pretty cool trips in the past few years.  She has ridden the Trans-Siberian Railroad, gone to somewhere in Africa (I forget which country), and most recently Patagonia.  I hope that at some point I will be able to do things like that.

Of course really the important thing is that I have to thank my mother for the fact that I am ever here to write this.  I do my best to make my mother proud every day.  I know that there are things that I do a certain way because that is how I learned it from my mother.  The biggest thing I think that I have not done that my mother wants me to do is get a haircut.  I probably could use one, but not short like she think she wants.  It’s my hair, I’ll wear it how I want.

So, with that, here is to my mother!
