Mom, I never, ever, ever, ever, ever truly understood how hard you worked till I became a mother myself. Sigh. I had no idea. You always said "Just you wait and see" and I though you were full of it. When I went off to school every day, I honestly thought you just goofed off. I had no idea what you did for us and I took it for granted. You were such a hard worker and I can't even begin to tell you how much it meant to walk into the door from school and know you were there waiting for us. I should've known those dishes didn't wash themselves and we didn't have a magic laundry machine that gathered it all up, washed, and put it all away. It was YOU! You made it a home for us.

Thank you, Mom
