me as a baby…with my mom behind me © my dad? 1977
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.
