Tribute to My Mom

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. Instead of a card and flowers, I paid tribute to my mom on Facebook by sharing her wisdom.

I heard these phrases repeatedly throughout my life – and she still says them. This is my core being. This is who I am.

My brother and I are the luckiest children in the world – we got to have Mom as our mom!
