You’re always the family’s champion, sharing with the world our successes and joys. Today I want to share the joy of having you as a mother! You’ve always given me guidance, even as an adult, while appreciating that I have to stand on my own two feet. Even when I haven’t made the best decisions, you’ve stood by me and never let me feel like I’ve let you down. I know that I can tell you things in confidence that you’ll never repeat, and we’ve always had a relationship based on laughter, love and honesty. I wouldn’t be who I am today if you weren’t who you are. Happy birthday, Mama!
