Overview

"I was a difficult child," writes best-selling author Gregory E. Lang. "I tormented my parents with my struggles for independence, disrespect, and disobedience. I was a rebel without a clue.

"I was not unlike most children and teenagers. I am pretty sure I rarely showed appreciation for what my mom did for me and gave to me. I simply didn't say thank you when I should have. This is my chance. Thank you, Mom."

Now, years later as a parent himself experiencing the tensions of parenting firsthand, he writes Thank You, Mom to express his gratitude to his mother, not just for the many sacrifices she made on his behalf, but also for the patience she extended to him in those turbulent years. In short, he thanks her for never giving up on him. He knows that can't possibly thank his mother enough for everything she did for him while he was growing up, but in these pages he tries. In doing so, he touches on many universal themes that mothers and their children have always shared.

Thank You, Mom is a gift book for anyone who wants to tell that one special woman that you love her, that you know what she did for you, and that you look to her as the model for what it means to be a parent.

Editorial Reviews

Can anybody really count all the reasons why we appreciate our mothers? Probably not, but grateful son Gregory E. Lang offers a zestful beginning. His loving list of 100 reasons ranges from the unabashedly sentimental ("all those times you tucked me in at night with a kiss") to the practical ("making sure I did my homework") to Major Life Lessons ("giving me the time and space to become independent").
