Over the past few months the distance from Chicago to North Carolina has seemed insanely too far and I am ready to close the distance. I want to get that hug from my mom, sit and talk with my sisters for hours (like only sisters can do), and conquer all of the world's problems with my dad, because, man, the world is in need of our help right now. I'm so ready to be with the people who know me, who get me, and who always make me feel at home.
I'm so excited I will get to be there to help support, care for, and repay some of their wonderfulness this weekend.
Happy Mother's Day to my mom, the strongest woman I know.
Happy Mother's Day to my grandma, the amazing woman who raised the strongest woman I know.
Happy Mother's Day to my sister, the best new mama I have ever met. She has handled this whole mother-hood thing with grace, patience, and so much love. I am so impressed and so proud. What a lucky guy Ben is. :)
Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!
