Things That Are True - Mother's Day

My mom, my baby sister, and me almost exactly 36 years ago.

Becoming The Imp's mother has made me strive to be a better person. More patient, more principled, more open to the small joys in life. I'm far from achieving my goals; I fall down often. I think I'm down to about once a day where I think I'm the worst mom ever. But I keep getting back up, so that's something.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom. I love you. 


  1. I firmly believe that being a good mother is really just all about the getting back up and trying again. It's all we can do.

    Happy Mother's Day to you!

  2. Thanks, Amber. There are days when the getting back up seems impossible. And yet we do.

    Happy Mother's Day to you too!
