Dear Mom Letter

<img src="" align="right" alt="Riding In Cars With Boys" hspace = "7" border = "2">Watched <a href="" target="_blank">Riding In Cars With Boys</a> on video a moment ago. It was such a splendid experience. It gave me an insight of what my mother's life was like, what she might have felt, and probably even what she now feels.
I guess in many ways mother has changed quite a bit since my childhood days. She is a now a highly motivated, analytical lady who seems to know exactly what she wants to do and how she wants to do it. Yet I can almost imagine the teenage girl who applied to major in accountancy simply because her friends did. it is comforting to know that at some point in life, she was as clueless as we her children are.
She had her first kid (yours truly) in her early twenties. I admit to not being anything like a "good" kid. I never did my homework, told lies all the time and seemed disinterested in everything but the books I liked reading. Like Drew Barrymore's character in the movie, I'm sure she had her share of dreams, and yet they seemed to slip away with every passing minute. Her idea of an ideal home, an ideal life must have changed radically with my existence. I was a free radical, an unpredictable factor that changed plans, hopes and dreams.
Yet like the movie I hope that she has seen the wonderful job she has done throughout these years. I have no doubt in my heart that many compromises have been made on her part, but I hope that she finds fulfillment in knowing that this child, her son, has grown up to be quite the ok kid. I'm thankful for all that she has done and all that she has had to give up. The movie has made me see her as an individual being, on top of being my mother.
