My sense of humor, wry sarcasm and general sassiness comes thanks to my mom. I can see it now, not so much when I was younger.
Growing up it was so easy to take for granted everything my mom did for me. I think about the activities, programs, lessons and sports I participated in, and it meant my mom committed her time to making sure I was there and able to do those things, too. I took dance classes, painting classes, piano classes, gymnastics: I remember going with my mom to her yoga class at the community center. We were involved. And I had a sister seven years older and a brother seven years younger. I wasn’t the only one she made sure was exposed to arts, culture and sports.
My mom is incredibly creative: my own creativity stems directly from her passion of learning and creating beauty. And a love of these things: seeking out projects and opportunity for self expression. Thanks mom, and Happy Mother’s Day. I wish we were together: I'd put you to work in the garden with me today. The roses are just beginning to bloom.
