Happy Birthday, Mommy!!

Momma and me at a Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game!
Dear Mom,

Today is a special day; it's 10/11/12!! Just kidding, the best thing about today is that it's your birthday!

You are such an inspiration to me, as a mother and as a woman. You were the one to show me how hard work can get you what you want in life and that when life hands you lemons, you curve ball it right back. You have never taken "no" for an answer, fighting for almost everything you got. Acceptance, a college education (and masters, you smart lady!), a successful business job, a healthy marriage, and all of life's luxuries. I've never met a person who has worked harder than you.

Life was never easy for you, and I appreciate that you confide things about yourself and your feelings with me. You treat me like a person and not a child, which is something you always knew held value to me. You have fought for me and my little brother; your courage and determination has shown me the depth of a mother's love. I can never repay you for the things you have given me, but I know that you would never ask for anything in return.

In short, I love you Mom!! You're the best mom a girl could ask for and you have better advice than me, which is something truly rare! You know I kid, you're just awesome and that's why I love you so much. ;)

Have a great day and I hope you love your gifts!
