Dear Joey, Grace and Thomas:
I want you to know how much you are loved. The three of you challenge me in ways I didn’t know were possible, but I truly find it delightful to watch you play, learn and grow as individuals and as a family. As I’ve learned this year, your siblings are who will be with you through it all, and I hope that the good relationships you have now will continue as you mature. Much love to you, my Joey Bean, Lulu, and Tom-Tom.
Thank you for being with me as a parent. You are a great father and I appreciate your support as I navigate motherhood.
I miss you and I wish you were here. I will always be thankful for the 5 years we shared as mothers and for the insight you provided after nearly 30 years on the job yourself. I catch myself saying or doing things that I recognize as your way. It’s nice. Erin, Sarah, and I were lucky to be your daughters.
Happy Mother’s Day.
