Today is my dear mother's birthday.
She is amazing. I cannot think of a kinder, sweeter, more selfless woman. She's the type of person who will drop everything she's doing to help someone in need. (Like Friday night at 11:00 when she drove across town to bandage up Clint's split-open forehead/basketball wound). And somehow, after raising 9 children of her own and enduring the heartache some of us have put her through, she still loves kids more than anyone I know. My children will be so lucky to have her as a grandmother.
Happy Birthday Mom. I love you.
