“Who cares what they’re wearing on Main Street or Saville Row, it’s what you wear from ear to ear, and not from head to toe… that matters.”
Since Mother’s Day is on Sunday, and I won’t be able to spend it with my mom, I started thinking about how to show you what a good mom she was and is.
I remember, in 5th grade she bought me the 1999 version of Annie. I watched the film over and over and then she bought me CD. It was the greatest gift she brought home… just because.
As I “cleaned up” and did the dishes after dinner, I would plan these songs and sing into my broom and pretend I was Annie.
My mom let me pretend I was an orphan four hours. I even pretended she was Ms. Hannigan and that she was enslaving me by making me clean up the house.
I had such a middle child complex! Even in the midst of my theatrical 5th grade display, she sang and danced along with me.
My mom always saw who I was and let me be me. That’s what made her the greatest mom.
Happy Mother’s Day.
“I love you, Ms. Hannigan.”
