My Mother, My Friend

Happy Birthday to my Mom!!

(My Mommy and me Dec. '72 - I was 4 months old - in Rowland Hts., CA)
I know I'm always a day late and a dollar short...but I wanted to wish my mom the happiest birthday ever! I was out of town over the weekend, so I'm posting this wish a day late! Yesterday was the day the world was blessed with the gift of my mom! The number of lives she has touched is infinite, I'm sure. She is the most compassionate, caring, loving person I've had the pleasure of knowing, and I have the honor of calling her "mom".
She molded me in so many ways that went completely undetected until I reached motherhood myself. I'm proud to say that I am so much like my mom, and hope to be more like her in the future. I wish that everyone in the world could know her, her heart is enormous and I think the world of her!
All my love, mom! You're the best!

Thank you, Heather! "I" am the one who is blessed with the great children that call me "Mom!" Without you, I couldn't claim that title! Someone told me a very long time ago that it was wrong to be a "friend" to your children -- I disagreed with that person then, and I disagree even today! If we can't be friends, how can we teach "love?" I love you right back, Heather!
