In my 30th-birthday album that my mom made me, under this picture she wrote:
"This photo demonstrates our relationship so well. Look at the joy on both of our faces! I am holding you as tightly as I can. We enjoy being together. We are having fun. We feel safe with each other. You are my friend. You have a shoe untied that I will fix later."
Mom, you have tied so many of my laces. All I can say, on this mother's day, is that I love you. and THANKS.
PS. Happy Birthday Sam. And thanks to my honey and the posse for making my Mother's Day special
