I am lucky. I was raised by a very loving, caring mom. Carolyn Steed was a stay-at-home mom who did all she could to raise my sister and I to be strong, independent women. I’d say she did a good job at that. I try to show and tell her on a regular basis how much she means to me. Today I’m a little sad because it’s actually the first time I’ve been apart from my mom on Mother’s Day. This year, she’ll be celebrating the day at the beach. And, as a mom myself, I think she has the right idea.
Personally, I have many things in my life that I like to do. I like to write, speak in public, network and plan events, and I love my work. But, the best role I have is that of being a Mommy to my sweet twins. They are the light in my life. I’m not big on celebrating me, so I take this day to thank my kiddos, because Jack and LiLi were the ones who gave me the best job in the world. Motherhood.
I love you my sweet babies. Thank you for a glorious Mother’s Day. Happy Mom’s Day to mother’s everywhere!
