Happy Birthday Mom!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

My mom is my best friend. I don't know what I would do without her. If I am a fraction of the mother she is I will consider myself blessed. She is so wise, funny, caring and getting younger everyday!

A funny story: There was a time (I say that as if it were a while ago, but think a week or two ago) my mom considered letting her hair go gray. "Just let nature take its course." My Dad, citing something about a divorce lawyer when asked what he thought, vetoed the gray 'do. My sister was also less than impressed. It was official when she was jump roping with my nieces and nephews (and then proceeded to reference a recent "Kendra" episode featuring jump roping) that she is WAY too young to go gray.

She's the best! I love you mom! Thank you for giving me the best example on how to be a loving parent to my children one day. I couldn't do it without you. Seriously - I can't. So plan on sticking around for another 30-40 years, k?
