Mom


Happy Mother's Day, Mom. You are wonderful. I want to devote a post all to you for your special day, because as far as mothers go, you're the best.

Loving. Nuturing. Beautiful. Understanding. Caring. Generous. Giving. Sweet. Creative. Smart. Wise. Kind. Strong.


All these words describe you. You are an inspiration to me. You have given so much, not expecting anything in return. I only hope you can sit back on this day, and smile with pride at how Patrick, Philip, and I have turned out. We want to make you proud. You've sacrificed so much for us, and provided everything we've needed on our paths through life. We'll never forget that.


This is such a neat photo. I paused before posting this one, because it's from your wedding anouncement clipping, but I think it encapsulates your personality.

I, personally, have always been awed by your wisdom and patience while bringing us up. Thank you so much for everything you've done and everything you continue to do. Thank you for the gift of my values, my personality, my artistic talent, and eternal optimisim. Thank you for always being there for me, and accepting me, no matter what.

I came out to you at sixteen, and you gave me the gift of continual, unconditional acceptance. That alone is an amazing example of your kindness and understanding, and I will always treasure that.

You're the coolest. I love you.

verrrry excellent way to celebrate your mom for mother's day.
good job, man!

knowing her like i do - i'll bet she cried her eyes out at all the beautiful things you said ... and then said, in her trademark embarrassed-but-flattered-all-at-the-same-time voice, "JUSTIN!!! i can't believe you posted my pictures on the internet."
;-)

she sure IS a beauty and so r u!
