Happy Mother's Day. Mom! I am the last of 8 children. That right there should win my mom an award! Eight is A LOT of children! You don't really realize it until you have children of your own... I stopped at three! There have been many times I have called my mom to ask for advice, and... to apologize for giving her such a hard time. Like...when I was in grade school I gave her hell for not being like the other "cool" moms and wearing pants. My mom only wore dresses. At that point I never wore dresses, just the thought made me want to run outside and get dirty. Or when I was a teenager and wouldn't let her touch me in public...no arm around my shoulder (too cool). But alas, things change and time marches on and clarity comes, thank God! And now I know the truth. My mom rocks the universe! She is beyond cool. She is real and I am so proud of her. She is where I get so many things... My hazel green eyes, my love of the garden, my stubbornness, my love of shoes, and anything "swish." She named me "Muffie" when the nurse brought me to her bedside announcing, "here is little Miss Muffett." Who else could think "Muffie" was just the right name when I had already been named Elizabeth Stuart? ...only my mom! Mom, thank you from the bottom of my heart for not stopping after number 6 and 7 (twins) and having just one more. I love you!
