Today is my mom's birthday! I'm sure a lot of people say this but this time it's really true: I have the best mom in the world! She has done so much for me. She has always been there to support me in whatever I want to do and she has been there to help me through every problem or obstacle that has come my way. I would not be who am today if it were not for her. She is the one who has made it possible for me to do so well in my classes and really focus on getting my degree. She is the most loving, caring, kind person I know and I don't know what I would do without her. We have certainly had rough times but we are closer than ever and it makes me so happy that I am so blessed to have a mom like her. I know that she would (and has) do anything for me that I needed. She would support me as long as I was safe, happy, and healthy. Without her love and support I probably would have gone down a completely different path. I could only wish that more people were like her. We have a lot of our own inside jokes and songs that we've made up and I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope that when I get married and have kids that I can be as amazing as she is. I know with her guidance that I will be able to at least be close to her amazingness. It is no surprise that she is so great, though because- in case you didn't know- I have the greatest grandparents in the world, too. And they are just as amazing and supportive and loving as my mom and I wouldn't trade any of them for anything in the universe.
So happy birthday, mom! I hope it is an amazing one and I wish I could be there to celebrate with you! I love you!
