And for those of you who no longer have your mothers in your lives, or have poor relationships with them, I am truly sorry.
I love my Mom, she is fabulous in so many ways. It has been advised to me by my OBGYN that I should stick close to the area when at all possible. My mom came down to visit today, which of course made Hannah's day. However, she also cooked while she was here. Nothing on earth is better than my Mom's beef stew. At least in my more than somewhat biased opinion. It was amazingly yummy (but then most meals I don't have to cook are) and I have enough leftovers to eat for a week.
I hope that in 26 years my girls are just as happy to have me around as I am to have my Mom around.
