Mother's Day.. Belated.

I wanted to post about this yesterday, but I couldn't bring myself to think about spending Mother's Day without my Mom. So I did what I do best when I'm sad about something-- I ignore it. Pretend like it doesn't exist. So yesterday.. Mother's Day did not exist.
It's not because I don't love my mom, because really... as hubby puts it, I need to cut the umbilical cord already. (Yes, he really did say that. In front of my Mom. We died.) I just hate that she's 603 (exactly) miles away and I'm not able to celebrate with her.
My Mom is one of my best friends. Not a day goes by that we don't speak on the phone and share about our days. She knows almost everything about me (the things she doesn't know.. I don't think she wants to know) and loves me just the same. She is one strong woman, a woman who I hope I can be when I grow up. Everyday I thank my lucky stars that she is my mother.
So.. thank you mom. Thank you for being the best mother a gal could ask for. I love you.
