This is how I want to be remembered

I have been reading Shapely Prose for about a year now. Because it is full of personal observations usually centered on very vulnerable topics, I feel personally connected to the writers even though they don't know me from anyone. Recently, Sweet Machine posted on her mother's recent passing. The entire post is beautiful and worth reading but it was the last bit that really struck me.
She was a good mother; she loved me — she loved the actual, living world — unconditionally. There are no other rules.

This is what I strive for as a mother. I am so glad SM had her in her life and I really hope I can embody this for my son and any future children I may have.
