MOM


my mom can make any room look cozy.
she can make a simple cup of coffee seem like a once-in-a-lifetime treat.
my mom taught me everything i know about being thrifty. i.e. always hit the clearance rack 1st.
my mom is a woman of faith.
she is committed to doing her best.
she likes to travel.
some might say she is a tad obsessive-compulsive about cleanliness. (those people haven't met the rest of the family)
my mom is a dedicated daughter to her parents.
she is willing to give people a chance who might otherwise be shunned.
my mom used to let me "call in sick to school" sometimes when i was having a rough day.
my mother oozes generosity.
she is creative and talented.
she takes a stand for what she believes is right.
there are very few people as detail-oriented as my mom.
my mother is resilient and independent.
she is a wonderful woman whom i love,

and today i celebrate her. my mom.

happy birthday mom!
