Happy Mother's Day!

Dear Mom:
Thanks for always saying, "aw, you could do that," and meaning it, and then actually helping me figure out how to do it, so I grew up with the confidence (however false), that I could take apart a sink drain, install an icemaker or a dimmer switch, reupholster an ottoman, hang a chandelier, (or even start a blog), if I wanted to. And thanks for uncomplainingly climbing under the sink, replacing the fuse, and pulling out all those tacks when I inevitably screwed up a few times in the learning process. Also, thanks for single-handedly rebuilding my kitchen cabinet while I was away at a wedding last weekend. I'm not sure, but I think I'm pretty lucky to have you.
Love ya,

P.S. A big Happy Mother's Day to Marta, the warmest and kindest mother-in-law a girl could hope for, and Happy 1st Mother's Day to Kelly- I can already tell that you are going to excel at motherhood like you do at everything else!
