To my mother- I’ve loved you with my entire heart since the day I knew what love was. 2,363 miles apart, it doesn’t matter. You’re an extension of me no matter where you are. You created a home that I can always return to, a friendship I can always rely on, and a comforting voice I can call up when life has kicked me in the teeth. You’re my funniest online troll, my homegirl when you’ve had too many vodka cranberries and want to go dancing, and Mama Lahmas to my friends and colleagues across the country. Happy Mother’s Day @mamalahmas52 and to all the beautiful moms who show generations of men and women what it means to love someone more than you love yourself. #happymothersday
