Hi, Mom! First off, let me say how you totally ruined how I planned to surprise you with this. Okay. I just needed to say that.
Anyway… Happy birthday! I know you think I write well, but to be honest, I’m having a hard time writing this. It’s not that I couldn’t write anything about you; it’s that I find it hard to find the words to describe how truly amazing you are.
Smart and strong, you raised me to handle everything in life with good humor.
You’re generous and kind, to the point that sometimes it exasperates me.
You’re really hilarious. You routinely make me and everyone else in the family laugh with your quick wit, wild imagination, and over-the-top facial expressions. And I won’t even go into detail about your New Year Magic Sing performances.
Don’t ever change your loving nature.
Happy birthday, and many more to come!
