Today is a very special day, my mom’s birthday her age, will remain a mystery, but lets just say it’s a milestone. I’m so happy to be blessed with sharing one more year of her life with her. She is the most special person you will ever have the honor and blessing to meet. I know we all say that about our parents, but to me it rings true.
She has been through hell and back more times than I care to count and still remains smiling and seeing the good in ever single thing. Today was a bittersweet birthday because my father was not there. So we visited him a bit, but all in all I think she was happy to have all her kids with her.
Today, was a milestone for her in more ways than one. All her kids are grown and on their path. Looking at it all from the outside I think she has done an outstanding job. She helped us through our trials and tribulations, held our puzzle pieces together through our doubts and frustrations, she was there.
My mother is my rock and the person I wish to be like everyday of my life. In celebration of this grandiose day, I dedicate to her a song:
I love you mom, thank you for keeping my head up to the sky.
