Happy Birthday Mom!

In honor of my mom's birthday yesterday, I have ten, of the many, things she has taught me over the years:

1. There's no such thing as over-decorating your house for a holiday.
2. Never leave the house without your nails painted and earrings in your ears.
3. Invest money into your home. Where you spend your time, where you grow.
4. Never buy cheap paper towels or cheap toilet paper.
5. Monograms and classic lines will never go out of style.
6. I have learned all about logic: "Because I said so, that's why!"
7. I also learned about genetics: "You're just like your father."
8. Always wear sunscreen. Don't forget the sunscreen on your hands!
9. Eat right and exercise.
10. Keep care of your husband. Honor him.

Happy birthday Mom!!

Mom,

Another birthday and I wish I was there to celebrate with you. I don't have all the money right now to buy you all the material things I wish I could give to you, so my words will have to be enough. 

I feel closer to you these days than ever before. Some women are reluctant to become like their mothers, but that is all I could ever wish for. You define resilience. You've fought through Hell and back without complaining or giving up. You love so fiercely. You always make an effort to understand the things you don't, and that is what makes a person intelligent. You're so beautiful and if I'm half as pretty as you at your age, Kevin will be a lucky, lucky man. 

You're so sensible and compassionate. I've always admired your conviction.

When you say that you're proud of me, it means more than anything anyone could ever say. I am so incredibly proud to be your daughter and I can't wait to realize more of you in myself as I grow older. 

Thank you for everything you've done for me and our family. I hope I can return the favor in my adult life.

Have such a wonderful day! I love you!
