My mother and I didn’t always get along well. (That collective gasp you just heard was the sarcastic response of my family to that statement.) But no matter how tough things got between us, I never once doubted that if I needed her for anything, she’d be there in a heartbeat. Because that’s what moms do. They give you the last piece of cake, they put a bandage on your boo-boo even when you’re forty and they worry about the health of your bowel movements until the day they die.
So today we rightfully celebrate all things mother. And since her husband and the father of her child forgot to mention her in his comments on this day, may I be the first to say Happy Mother’s Day to Melania.
