I didn’t expect a Mother’s Day present, I was so happy to talk to my very busy, hard-working daughter on our special day- she’s a Mom herself.
… but when I ripped open the box – look what I found! A colorful, beautiful “happy birds” cold bag , monogrammed with Greeneroo and a beautiful stripped blanket – matching colors with a waterproof base. Wonderful, functional and so sweet of her and her family to think of me! So Happy, So Blessed!
As a working Mom, there were times, I was giving up being with my family, but it meant that we had health insurance, a better life, vacations and more. There were many times I wanted to be with them and a project at work took that time. Now my kids are working hard and striving for their own great success. You cannot go backwards, you can just do your best everyday. The work-life balance is not easy, but the incredible support of my family made it possible for me to go to work. It is wonderful to be acknowledged.

You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the thing you cannot do. — Eleanor Roosevelt
To my family: YOU are the best part of my life ….. everyday. No other accomplishment comes close. Even in hard times. Even with distance. You fill my heart. Love, Mom.
