Happy Mother’s Day! I always love to take this day to thank my mom for everything she’s done for me, not only in the past year, but over the course of my 30 years here.

Mom, you’ve been an amazing mother to all your children, and I know I can speak for us all when I say we’re so thankful to call you our mom. We’ve learned to embrace and love our heritage, how to cook, clean and (most importantly) how to love.

Today, hug your moms for me and treasure every moment of celebrating them.
