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.
