World's Greatest Mom!

World's Greatest Mom!

Mom, you always say that you have no creativity because you gave it to your kids. I never believed that. Meriam-Webster defines creative as:

1 : marked by the ability or power to create : given to creating 2 : having the quality of something created rather than imitated : imaginative

You are creative. You are resourceful and tenacious. You have created so much. You created an environment for ten children to thrive, learn, and grow in. You helped us find our talents. You made us work. Your creativity made us believe that anything was possible-- we could all have matching jams shorts before we walked out the door to school.

Ten creative children come from two creative parents. You may not play piano like Marissa, or sculpt like Janis, or build like Daniel, or figure out stuff about polymers like Will, or write like David, or design beautiful outdoor spaces like Erik, or fly anything like Chris, or draw like Ben, or take photgraphs like Emily, or paint like me, but you planted those creative seeds and nourished them and supported them. Maybe your creative talent is creating creative talent.

We owe you many thanks for that. We love you!
