Thoughts on Mother's Day

There is something special about a mother. 

She is a woman who sits up with you all night when you’re sick, doing everything in her power to make you feel better.  She is a woman who remembers your favorite meal and will go out of her way to gather and cook all the ingredients for that meal, even though you’ve long since left the house.  She is a woman who is so selfless that she takes care of every detail before and during your wedding, to make sure you have the perfect day.  She is a woman who creates personalized gifts just for you, which encase all her talent and love.  She is a woman who insists that you: drink your milk, take your vitamins, eat your fruit, wear sunscreen and remember that "you'll catch more flies with honey than you will with vinegar."  She is a woman who scours every store in town collecting all the items you’ve requested be sent from the US to Korea.  A mother is an amazing woman.

This isn’t the first Mother’s Day we’ve been unable to see our moms in person.  However, we are as far away now as we’ve been from them at any given time.  What this trip has taught us (among many things) is that geographical closeness (or in this case distance) doesn’t determine the strength of a relationship.  The older we get, the more we appreciate our mothers and the closeness we have with them. 

We want to wish our moms a Happy Mother’s Day.  Linnea, Sarah, Jeana: We’re thinking of you today and we love you always.
