I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine — she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights. I love my father as the stars — he’s a bright shining example and a happy twinkling in my heart.

Time for gratitude

There’s nothing like a mama-hug.

—Terri Guillemets, 1996 April 18th

P.S. I love my Mama! Side story: I tend to have quite a case of white coat hypertension. One time at the doctor’s office when the assistant was about to take my blood pressure and even as she was taking it, I closed my eyes and imagined giving my mom a hug. It was the only time my reading came out close to normal! –tg, 2015
