Today of course is Mother’s Day and though my mother is a few provinces to the east of me I wanted to send her a very special thanks for giving birth to me. For if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be here (granted my father has a part in it as well, but we won’t get into that).
My mom is your typical Italian mother. She always made sure you finished everything on your plate during our meals, always cook amazing pasta and sauces (I have yet to be able to reproduce her speghetti sauce), and always made sure the house was cleaned.
My mom did work alot too to provide for us. At one point she held down 2 jobs. She would work in the early morning, come home for lunch and then she would be off again to afternoon work. She is now retired and able to just enjoy life, though sometimes we have to push her to do that.
All in all I wouldn’t trade my mom in for anything. I love you mom and miss you alot!
And let me not forget that my 2 sisters are also mothers and this is their day as well. I miss you both as well and I hope you both have a great Mother’s Day too!
