Dear Mom

I wish we could have met on even ground without the obstacle of religious differences between us. I am so greatful to have had you as my mother. You were a very strong person and very intelligent. I remember seeing you put yourself through court reportingschool while working long hours. I appreciate all the many sacrifices you made for us.

I am now a grand parent and wonder if you were as amazed to see how small and sweet the next generation of children are? Did you notice how much they resemble their parents? My oldest looks so much like you, and when I look inthe mirror, I see grandma.

I wish we could have shared each other's hopes and dreams. I would have liked getting to know you as a woman and not just my mother. Thanks Mom for everything.
