Mother's are kinda important. After all, none of us would be here without them.
But more than that, we are who we are as adults at least in part because of what we learned from our mothers. My mother is a brilliant professional who showed me that a woman could succeed (and excel, even) in a man's world. And she is a fabulous writer who was my first reader on my first book (and did lots of edits so I looked a lot smarter than I am).
So thank you, Mom, for everything you did and do for me. I love you. Happy Mother's Day.
And yes--I cleaned my room.
