Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom’s birthday!  My mom is the best.  She has set such an excellent and inspiring example for me my whole life, and I owe her (and my dad) so much.  My mom is a very positive thinker and a hard worker.  She is giving and extremely compassionate towards others.  She never gave up on me, even when I was a real shitty kid.  She never gave up on herself when bad things happened to her.  I am one lucky girl to have such a great mom.  Without someone like her to look up to, what would have become of little ol’ me (see above)?

Mom, I hope you have a wonderful birthday.  You really deserve that puppy!  Just kidding (but really, you do deserve a puppy if you so chose to get one someday…just putting that out there…no pressure).  I wish I was there to celebrate with you, but we will all be together this time next week.  Yay!  I love you.
