|Hanging out in Times Square on a recent visit to NYC|
I know I don't always tell my mom how much she means to me and how blessed I am to have had her to keep me in line all these years, but I feel very fortunate to have her in my life. She always asked me to just do the best that I can. Even though that drove me crazy when I was younger, I know that it is true. After all, that is all that you can do :) As I have grown older, I have realized how much energy it takes to care so much about someone as stubborn and opinionated as me and how much sacrifice my mom has made over the years to make sure we had so many wonderful opportunities and experiences. I am very grateful for these things among many others even if it isn't always perfectly easy to tell. I hope that I am someday blessed enough to be a mother and have the ability to do the same for my kids. I'll probably even bust out a few classics like "Never mind, I'll just do it myself!" HAHA :) Thanks for being such a wonderful mother. Hope you enjoy your flowers all week long!!
|Happy Birthday, Mom!!! I love you!!|
