Happy Mother’s Day

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine asked me in an interview why I have been able to achieve everything I have always wanted to achieve. Was it my parents? Was it my friends? Was there a mentor? Who helped push me into success?

It hit me that my parents never once questioned my dreams. Never. It gave me the chills… How had I been so lucky?

I was adopted.

I was brought into an extremely amazing family just after my birth. I cannot imagine a life lead without their guidance.

I especially could not imagine a life without my mother. She has taught me so many things. Sometimes, I wish I had a huge book filled with answers to all of my questions to her over the years. She knows everything. (Your mom probably does, too, and I encourage you to never be afraid to ask her something).

My mother might not have always understood me or what I have been doing in the creative community or life in general, but she always gave me a chance. Sometimes, she even took those chances with me. In fact, with out her, The Good Child brand might have never seen the light of day. And, without her, I would never have been given the chance to be The Good Child (okay, my father and my brothers also had a big part in that, and I am grateful for them all).

So, here’s to my mother on Mother’s Day. And, to her mother, my grandma. For, without “Meresy,” absolutely none of my life would have panned out the way it has.

Thank you, mothers. With all of my youthful heart. I hope to some day care for a child the way you have – the world needs more kindness, compassion, and understanding like that which you have offered.

I love you!
