The Weekly Photo Challenge this week with the Daily Post is entitled “Thankful.” Although Thanksgiving is long gone for me, today is a day on which I feel thankful.
It is my mother’s birthday.
So, my picture that means thankful is a picture of us together on a day that I think meant more to her than to me, my graduation day. It was a day that reminded me how grateful I am for my family and how I was raised.
I am thankful that she was born. And that she, despite some of the weirdness that was her childhood, turned out to be okay. And a great Mom, not only to me, but to my friends and Patrick.
She raised me well. I think I turned out half decent. And one day, I hope to be an equally good mother.
Thus, I am thankful.
