Happy Birthday Mom!

Tomorrow is my mom's 50th birthday. I say how old she is going to be just because you would never guess by looking at her that she was 50. Thank goodness for those genes - I hope I keep them. :) My mom and I have had a very interesting relationship during my lifetime. She and I have not always seen eye to eye, but at the end of the day, I know I always have her support! She isn't one of those moms who tells you what you want to hear, but instead is honest. I have hated her for this many times ;), but I also appreciate it more than she knows. I appreciate the honesty because that has made me the strong person that I am. Though I may have thought I needed her sympathy at times, but actually I needed her to kick me back to reality!

Mom and I are very different in many ways, but similar in others and each day I find more of her in myself. (This is not a bad thing, Mom!) She is a caring, genuine, and wonderful person and mother! God definitely blessed me with a great family!

I'm sorry I won't get to see you on your birthday Mom - Rob makes me work! ;) But I will see you this weekend!! Have a great birthday and I love you!
