My mom reads my blog all the time and when she read this post she dropped me a line. Below is her email.
Mom ruled when you were younger. Hey, I see the great outcome of my enforcements. (is that the correct word?) See how you have become. A beautiful, awesome, loving, caring, thoughtful,(etc etc etc) kind of person. I heart you.
Seriously, how cool is my mom and that note? I tell my friends all the time how lucky I am that my mom and dad are MY mom and dad. And I'm not just saying that because I know she's reading this. XO
