Mother’s Day is a holiday that I haven’t spent in person with my mom since, oh, probably 1998. In the middle of May, I would have been in college, at OU, and then I moved to Colorado. It’s possible I might have been home in Cleveland during mud season, but I can’t recall for sure. So Mom, I’m sorry I haven’t been there with you for sixteen years on Mother’s Day. (And I won’t be there this year, either.) I just hope that next year we’ll be together–you, me, and Chandler, for Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
