A tribute to mom

June 7th, 2010

Mother’s Day was a few weeks ago, but I think we can all agree that moms deserve a special nod throughout the year. Sarah Cooper, author of Making History Mine, wrote an award-winning essay about her mom. The essay was published in Forum, the newsletter of the national organization Mothers & More.

Sarah’s mom, Jane, has been struggling with brain cancer and in the process Sarah found herself growing up. “Aside from watching their physical pain, this must be the hardest thing about a parent’s becoming ill: You say a final goodbye to your childhood, no matter if you’ve long inhabited adulthood. I feel healthier, more mature for it,” Sarah writes.

Read the full essay here. And then call your mom.
