The moms in my life

One woman kept me safe until I was old enough to keep myself safe. Another woman keeps me sane so I can be a good father. This is what moms do. They give all they have to make sure their children breathe, smile, and succeed. Their reward, near as I can tell, is the joy of being a mom. Sorta funny how that works, huh?

I’m not much of a gift-buyer. Below you’ll see the gifts I gave to my wife and mother. The first is a video of what it’s like around here when my wife is gone. The second is a picture of my mom smiling genuinely as she sits with my boys by the Reedy River.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the good moms out there. And thank you.
