Dear Mama,

two photos side by side.  One taken of a bride in 1975 holding her bouquet.  Another taken in 2009; the daughter of the woman to the left wearing the same wedding dress.

I shouldn’t need a day in the year to remind me to tell you how thankful I am to have a mother like you.  I hope that I tell you enough and show you often what an vast influence you have had on my life.  I wake up daily knowing I have a mother who supports me in all my endeavors, no matter how wacky they may be.  I have a mother who still takes care of me and always will.  I have a mother that showed me what generosity looks like and why we need more of it in this world.  Thank you for loving me.  Thank you for believing in me.

To my mother, my friend.  I love you.


Introducing The Zella.  For my mother who has always had an open mind and an open heart.
