On this beautiful Sunday in May, where moms are being celebrated everywhere in North America, I'd like to take the opportunity to give a big shoutout to my most faithful reader: my amazing mom.
Never once did she ever tell me that something was impossible, nor did she push me into things I seemed to have no interest or affinity for. She has never once questioned my choices, my path, my decisions, my ambitions. It has been just the opposite: she has unconditionally rallied behind me and supported every single one of my undertakings without hesitating for one second. Her unmitigated endorsements have made her the bearer of comfort, a pillar of strength to draw from, the vehicle that has propelled me froward and the most paramount barometer of validation. Everyone loves their mom. I personally don't know what I would have done, nor what I would do, to this day, without mine.
