Thanks for allowing me to be me, challenging me to do better, and holding me accountable when I was a complete idiot. I did not know it at the time, but you were doing your best to make sure I would grow up to be a good man. I thought you were being mean by making me do my homework immediately when I got home from school. I thought you were just a tyrant when you gave us a curfew. I thought it was ridiculous how we would have to finish a list of chores before we could do anything or go out with our friends, but now I appreciate it.
I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable Mother's Day. We wish we could be there to help you celebrate. We look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!
Love you and have a great day!
