I was going to save this until Mother’s Day, but I don’t think I can wait.

These may be the best words I’ve ever read on the subject of motherhood:

one thing about mothers on the whole
they’ll go to your thing
they’ll see what their kids are doing
if you tell your mother
that you’re doing your thing somewhere
if you invite her
she’ll most likely say
since my son told me about it
even though i’m risking my mortal soul
even though i’m jeopardizing my place in heaven
for my son
i’ll risk it
i’ll go to his thing
