No Other Love.

{Wasn't my mom gorgeous?}

Of all the loves in all the world, there is no love like the way you love your mother... Or the way your mother loves you.

I don't know if I can put into words my own appreciation for my own mom. {Especially this week, when she has been in the hospital recovering from ankle surgery and the only place on Earth I wanted to be was in that hospital room with her, holding her hand.} The love I feel for this woman - my mother, my best friend, and, at least on most days, my very favorite person in this world - cannot be expressed adequately on a blog that devotes itself in large part to mourning Brad and Jen. So, instead, I will direct you to what I wrote to her last year, which remains one of my favorite posts.

What I will say here, to you Mama, is that I would not be who I am today if I hadn't known "love of a tremendous magnitude" and for that I thank you. Happy, happy Mother's Day. I love you so much more than I can say.
