Happy Mother's Day, from the Rice Daddies to all our Rice Mamas!
You're our mothers, our grandmothers, our great-grandmothers, our step-moms, adoptive moms, surrogate moms, mothers-in-law, aunts. You're the women who have shaped our lives, brought us into adulthood, made us who we are. Thank you.
You're our lovers, our partners, our best friends, our spouses, our better halves, our wives. You're the mothers of our children, the best role models we could hope for for these tiny, fragile little lives we crazily thought we could bring into this world. Together, we're their parents, their protectors, the ones responsible for guiding them through this life, as our mothers and fathers did for us. And you know what? We wouldn't have it any other way.
For all you do and all you are, for everything we've thanked you for before and all the stuff we've accidentally forgotten, thank you. For us, every day is Mother's Day, and we love you.
