Happy Mother's Day
In May 2001, I began researching my own childhood for my autobiography, and learned a lot about my biological mother – a woman who as a child was physically abused and whose life consisted of alcoholism and abuse, that ultimately ended with her murder.
On this Mother’s Day, I think of her tragic life, and in doing so, I also think of how God has blessed me and my daughters with their mother; a woman who lives for her two little girls and who for the past 14 years has been a fabulous step-mom to my son.
At a time that life couldn’t seem more difficult for me and my family, I thank God that she is the mother of my daughters and will be there for them.
Happy Mother’s Day Hala... and to mothers all across this country, whose love and guidance, make our children the best they can be.
