I realized today that I write a lot about my mother. Since I can’t be with her today, I thought I’d celebrate her with a round-up of my mom-related writings.
Dear Mom, You Were Right About Everything (Almost). I originally wrote this for The Frisky a while back, but they’re running it again.
Striving for Imperfection. My contribution to the My Tiger Mom and Me anthology.
An Old Man on the Frontier Loses His Horse. My award-winning essay for the Bellingham Review.
Writing For My Mother. My guest blog post at Wisdom Has a Voice.
And if you want to be amused, here’s some of the crazy stuff my mom has said.
Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. Now to call mine and hope she doesn’t grill me about anything.
