mamita --- i will tell you all this in person but i wanted to say, so that everyone can see, that you are the best mom in the world. there's that phrase "i wish i could be half the person you are." i used to think that was terrible - who would want to aim to be half of anything? but i understand it now, as i grow older and try (try!) to be like you. you are amazing and lovely and all i want is to be half of what you are. i mean that a thousand times.
betsy --- i am so very blessed to have you as my mother-in-law. you are a lady through and through; soft-spoken and gentle and gracious and charming - and with a very quick wit too! i admire the way that you raised matt (i'm kind of crazy about him) and i'm so happy to get to be a part of your family.
i love you both. happy mother's day!
