happy birthday momma

I am one day shy of two weeks late, but surely a late post is better than no post at all! I know my sweet momma is not surprised by this belated birthday blog, because I have yet to send her the rest of birthday present! Thank you for loving me despite my terrible untimeliness – I’m working on it. :)

So here it is, a happy birthday to my favorite lady, a thank you for your countless sacrifices, a tribute to the best role model I will ever have.  I forget to tell you how thankful I am for you, because really I should be doing this daily. I have been blessed with a mother who on every single occasion, each and every day, puts the happiness and well-being of others above herself. At work, at home, in the grocery store, on vacations, probably even in your dreams – you are thinking about, and loving, others!

I could go on and on about you, sweet momma, but instead I am going to end with one wish. A wish for myself, at that. I hope that that moving back to you, being right by you and seeing your selfless actions, makes me just like you. Because truly, the world needs more people just like my momma.

I love you to the moon and back.

Momma and daughters, 2007 maybe?
