Happy Birthday Mom!!!

I have the best mom ever.  And today, on her birthday, I want her to know what I love and admire most about her:

You always put others first.  You forget about yourself and serve.  ALWAYS.

You teach me, not by what you say, but how you live.  I'm so grateful for your continuous example.

You are my mother and you are my friend.  It's not easy to be both of those things at the same time, but you manage it effortlessly.
Noah sums it up nicely with his oft repeated statement, "Is grandma cool or what!"

Mom, you really are the coolest mom, mother-in-law, and grandma.  I don't know what my family would do without you (seriously)!  We all love you so much and hope you have the best day ever : )
