Happy Mother’s Day From Corin

Dear Mom,

 
You’ve put up with so much from me over the years.

Sometimes I wonder how you managed to let me live!  So I thought I’d thank for for just a few of the MANY things you’ve done for me. Thank you for:
 
Putting up with me when I was more of a witch…

Than an angel.

Thanks for not strangling me when I kept calling you Marilla during my daydreamy Anne (with an E) days weeks months years.

Thanks for teaching me that you just have to laugh.  (otherwise you’ll cry, and then your nose will be all stuffy and your eyes will be all swollen…)  It’s saved me more times than you’ll ever know.

Thanks for helping me realize that we’re ALL a little bit crazy (but only the very best kind).

Thanks for letting me/us turn your kitchen into a Roman Colosseum every year.
 
 
 
Thanks for teaching me ways to subtly change the subject if a conversation wasn’t to my liking.

And for letting me practice my driving every single day (and helping scrounge up $5.11 every day).

Thank you for teaching me to hold my plans loosely, but still commiserating with me when things don’t turn out like I’d hoped.  Like when you texted with me for hours when our family vacation ended in a broken nose, hoards of fevered and vomiting children, and frozen bank accounts, 400 miles from home. O.o,/span>

Thanks for all of it, and SOOOOO much more!  Love you!
