my mom

I'm crazy about my mom for so many reasons:
My mom is no drama.
She's a great listener.
Animals are her passion and purpose.
My mom is a one woman humane society.
She inspires fierce loyalty.
My Mom thinks her kids are great, as is.
She doesn't criticize or judge.
And she doesn't dispense unsolicited advice.
Mom cares for the underdog, literally and otherwise.
She looks after dogs, cats, teens and the elderly who
might need a little lift.
Mom helps others quietly, without fanfare or expectation.
She is a very kind person.
From time to time, my mom doesn't mind running afoul of the law for the sake of rescuing pets. She once nabbed an abused dog, brought him home and changed his name and appearance,
like he was in the witness protection program.
She's funny too. Once when she ran out of names for stray dogs, she named a whole slew of them after the Brady kids.
When my girls are grown, I hope they love me as
much as I do my mom.
Happy Mother's Day.
