Love letter

Maybelle and NonniIt's a tiny bit early, but this is my gift to my mom for Mother's Day:  my latest column in the Charleston City Paper called "Even Though I'm 40, I Still Need My Mother."

(This means you're not getting anything else, mom!)


  1. That is one truly beautiful love letter. And the photo of your mama and Maybelle is so perfect. There's something completely infectious about Maybelle, and I believe I know where she "caught" it!

  2. This is beautiful. You are fortunate to have such a supportive and loving mama. I hope to be this kind of mom to my little boy.

  3. I think I thanked you for this beautiful article on FB, but just thought maybe I should also thank you here. Sheila read it on our walk this morning - she hadn't seen it before - and we both got teary again! You write so beautifully, and touch my heart so deeply. I love you!
