MOTHER. Happy Birthday. Today is your day. In a year full of trials and turmoil, let today be one of frivolities and fun. You are the WOman. In a world full of Parises and Kims, let your true beauty shine on all of them. Let them see that love, faith, strength, fight, and sacrifice is breathtaking. Let the world be inspired. By your laugh in the face of death. By your fortitude in the face of adversity. By your beauty in the face of hairlessness. Oh, MOTHER! What is more glorious than you? You are my daily inspiration. You did this. You ROCKED this! One more than me. Motherdom. I hope to foster the friendship we share with all of my children. I hope they look up to me as I do to you. I hope to have all the answers you gave to me. (And I hope they listen!) I hope I can always be EVERYTHING to them as you are to me. Ready to lend a hand, a checkbook, a meal, a heart, a bed, a gas tank, a soul. Always ready to lend ME. Mom, where do I start? Where do I end? I can't put into words what I want to say. What I want you to know, TODAY, on your day...is that I am ME because of YOU. And because of you, I LOVE ME! Happiest of Birthdays to the most Absolutely Fabulous Woman I know. I love you Mother. I love you so much!
