Episode #11 Speaking of My Mom Guest: Mary Ann Oaks My mom is a mother of 3 daughters, 8 granddaughters, 1 grandson, 2 great granddaughters and 2 great grandsons. She makes us all laugh so hard and she is so present in each and every one of our lives. It is a privilege to be her daughter and to have her here with me today to celebrate Mother’s Day. I am counting my blessings and am wishing anyone listening who is without their mom today or anyone who wants to be a mom and is finding it to be a challenge, so much love. Let us always lift each other up, especially those right now who need it most.
