Like you, I have one daughter who is the light of my life. My wish for you this Mother's Day is a day of love and joy. I'd wish you rest, but I don't think that will be possible.
Thank you for standing up for us. I want you to know how much your inner strength, grace and heart has sustained me during this campaign, and I hope the support and love we all have for you has helped you as well.
I've never had a "real" sister. All my sisters have been girls and women who I've been lucky enough to find along the way. We've laughed with each other, cried together, sat with each other in sickness and pain, and held each other in our hearts.
I count you in that number.
Happy Mother's Day.
