If you're a mom, I hope you are having a wonderful day today. I know this year is a bit different to say the least... many can't be with their kids or grandkids in person. However, NO pandemic can block the feelings of love and appreciation in all of our hearts, regardless of space... or time...
My biological mother passed when I was four years old. Years later my father remarried. THIS woman became my mother and fully loved me like her very own. A teacher by trade, the lessons I learned growing up as her son have been invaluable to this day.
Although often in forms that are overlooked and unappreciated, nothing is ever TRULY missing in our lives... IF we are willing to very thoroughly look.. wide, deep and close.
So today I share my love and gratitude for both of my moms. How fortunate am I? Happy Mother's Day to you both. My heart overflows with love and gratitude for you.
Oh and the idea to pursue radio as a career? Yeah... that came from my second mom as well - a possibility that certainly wasn't in my awareness as a teenager. I'm immeasurably grateful as I, quite literally, couldn't and wouldn't have done it without her.
