My first Mother's Day was 19 years ago and I wrote the Tri-City Herald to say how thankful I was for being a mom. Now my son is in the Air Force and my daughter is 17, so she is still home (yeah!). The years have flown by and I am still thankful to be a mom.
Being a mother is the best, most important job anyone can do and it has truly been rewarding! To all moms, Happy Mother's Day! Enjoy your children for they do grow too fast!
