|My mom holding Myra|
the day she was born.
And then ... we chatted.
I love my mom. She is a wonderful woman and was/is a very good mother. She is terribly insecure about these things and is quick to suggest that it is a miracle I turned out so good (the jury is still out on that one mom!) with how she raised me. But we ALL know the truth: she did a fine job raising me!

I have such respect for my mother and her lifetime of experiences. This evening we were able to have a very stirring conversation about progressing in our ability to overcome our own crosses that we bear. No single person has the same struggle or challenge as another, but regardless of the challenge, it is as real and difficult for that person as your own personal struggle is. If we could remember that simple truth, we would find it much easier to succor one another than fault find or judge unrighteously that our own challenge is much more difficult than another's.
Thanks for all you have taught me so far, and all that you will continue to teach me mom! I might be an "adult" with six wonderful children of my own, but you'll always be my "mommy" ... and I am ever so thankful for that!
I love you mom!
