Happy Birthday, Mom!
Today is my mom's birthday!
Happy Birthday, Mom! I adore you so much! For the past 14 years I have felt our friendship growing and growing and these last two years away from you has drawn my heart so close to you. I love you so much! I admire your strength and your courage and your vaulnerability. I admire your patience that NEVER seems to end (why didn't I get any of that from you?). I admire your true compassion and your thoughtfulness. You are an amazing woman. You seem to have every quality I wish I had. You are so grounded and together. You are my hero. . .the woman I wish I could be like!
It is so weird to me how much I long for you as a dear friend now that I am gone. I want to talk to you about fifty times a day. You're the person I want to call to laugh with and to cry with. You are who I want to run to for so many things. You are a very dear friend and I am so grateful for that!
I love you so much! You're the best! Happy Birthday!
