Mom

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY!
(yup my parents were born hours apart)

i love you to pieces - our bond is stronger then ever - i am so grateful to have the most amazing Mom (and Dad) - thank you for everything you have taught me, all the forgiveness you have shown me, and the unconditional love that is always awaiting me - no one ever can come close to you - i can only hope i'm half as amazing as you! - forever my love!



Why we need our Moms:

1.  When the love of your life gives you a diamond ring ... or meets someone else.
2.  The moment you pee on a stick and it's (OMG!) positive.
3.  On the morning of your birthday, when no one else is going to call till noon.
4.  When someone gives you a compliment so lavish you'd be embarrassed to repeat it to anyone else.
5.  When you find a lump.  Or she does.
6.  When the kids you're babysitting won't stop crying.
7.  When you get your first pink-eye or food processor ... or mother-in-law.
8.  When you need someone to assure you that, yes, 30 (or 40!) is still really, really young.
9.  When you need to know the exact shade to fix your under eye circles.
10.  When the recipe calls for evaporated milk and you're standing in the grocery aisle wondering, Is that a powder? A liquid? A gas?
11.  When you've swung up to the sky, and it doesn't seem real until she applauds.


MOM upside down is WOW!
