Birthday card to my amazing mom
To the woman who taught me virtually everything I know, who showed me what it feels like to be unconditionally loved, who generously gives all of her time, energy, money, and love without ever asking for anything in return:
Happy Birthday, Mom!
I am sorry I can’t be there to celebrate with you, but I am thinking of you today and hoping that you have a wonderful day.
Here are a few of the things I hope for you…
I hope you get everything you wish for this year, including lots and lots of thoughtful gifts.
I hope you get some nice surprises too!
I hope you have a fancy candlelight dinner prepared for you with all your favorite foods…
With a cake of your choice…
And plenty of help to blow out the candles.
