I am very, very fortunate to have the mother I do. And, as I get older, I realize that I am very fortunate to still have both my mother and father in my life. We are a small, close family that seems to get closer every year. I absolutely and completely love my mother - she has such a wicked sense of humor, is much too self-effacing, is completely open-hearted, fair-minded and very loving. Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
