Damned close to perfect

"There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one"

-----Jill Churchill

I have to say, my mom is about as close to a perfect mother as I could ask for. Granted, she's wired differently from me, so emotionally sometimes she just can't "get" me -- but she makes up for that in a myriad of ways. Everyone who meets her is just amazed at how great a mom she is. She's just a very thoughtful & balanced human being. With her, there is no sense of obligation or guilt. Her self-esteem is intact -- she can delight in my accomplishments, and it doesn't take anything away from hers. I love my mom.
