1 year and, obviously, happy mother’s day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all my fantastic mommy friends (to include all my friends of fur-babies!!!) and, of course, to the best mom of them all – *my* mom!!!

Today also marks 1 year. Since D Day. My mind was made up and the decision set into motion as I sobbed into a “like it” sized ice cream on a Cold Stone patio with my mom. Forty-eight hours and one consultation with a lawyer later (gotta know your rights!), things were in motion and I knew there was no turning back.

I promised my mom that Mother’s Day 2010 would be much better :). (Mom, I don’t have any bombs to drop this year!)

It just feels great to hit this milestone! Comparing where I was a year ago to now, really puts things in perspective. It makes me so thankful for how far I’ve come.

But, milestones aside, most of all, this is simply a special day to celebrate my mom and I couldn’t be more excited to spend the day with her. In this past year, we’ve grown so much closer, and we’ve transitioned into that special mother/daughter friendship that only comes in adulthood. I love my mom so very much and am so lucky to have her fighting in my corner. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, life can dish out whatever it wants and I will always have the unconditional love of my mother to carry me forward.

Happy Mother’s Day, Ma, I love you!!!

(I love you, too, Dad, you’ll get your day next month. 🙂
