I obviously can't be reunited with my mom for Mother's Day.  Well, at least not in a way I could safely return to my own kids.  But I still have plenty to thank her for.
Luckily, I did take the time to tell her, in person before I lost the opportunity how much I appreciated all that she did.  I can't say for certain she heard or understood everything I said but I believe in my heart she knew.
My mom and I went through a whole lot together during my life, from her being a single mom, to the issues of a blended family, to my teen years, to me becoming a mom myself.  Things weren't always perfect between us by any means but she was my best friend.  She was the one I called ten times a day, sometimes just to here someone else's voice, often for help with something.  She was an amazing shopping buddy.  And the best Grandma in the world!  I will miss her very dearly this Mother's Day.
