Today I celebrate my 12th Mother’s Day. My first Mother’s Day I was hormonal and cried all day because I was so happy to finally be a mother. When my son started school, Mother’s Day began to include an art project, most of which are framed and hanging in my house. Every year no matter what is happening on Mother’s Day, I am always grateful that I am a Mother. I wish each of you a wonderful Mother’s Day!
A year ago today, I launched this website www.i-am-a-mom.com on Mother’s Day. It began with some funny stories about being a Mom, making all of my friends laugh. When I joined Twitter, I began to reach a larger audience. With the story “Peanut Meets Ronald McDonald” in July 2014, my site became global when MacDonald’s tweeted the story as a most read. In the following month, I had another surge when “My Captain, My Captain” was published on the Tribute Wall for Robin Williams http://www.robin-williams.net/tributes.php. Through the laughter and the tears, this site has continued to grow to 5000 followers in 48 countries. I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for supporting www.i-am-a-mom.com. Happy Anniversary to www.i-am-a-mom.com!
Tomorrow is our opportunity every year to say thank you to our mothers. Mom we thank you for all of the late nights, early mornings, homemade costumes, birthday parties, Christmas stockings, serving as a Den Mother for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts, chaperone for field trips, cookies and cupcakes for bake sales, break up comforting, rides to dances, rides to dance and gymnastic classes, working extra hours to pay for our braces, watching all of our football, soccer and lacrosse games, all day support at dance competitions, waiting up to make sure that we came home safely, meeting with our teachers, getting us help in school when we needed it and most of all never giving up on us and our dreams. Thank you Mom for loving us unconditionally and always being there. Happy Mother’s Day!
