My mom turns 70 today. Though she doesn’t look a day over 60. I don’t feel bad displaying her age because I’m pretty certain she won’t be reading this post. Not because she isn’t a good mom, but because she just figured out how to attach a picture to an email. Finding the link to my new blog is going to take at least another 6 months. And then finding this particular post…well, that could take years!
On the outside we are two very different people. But at closer glance she has influenced me more than I probably dare admit. As a tribute to my mom on her special day, I have compiled a list of things that I appreciate about her, inspire me, or simply make me laugh. So whether she reads this or not…Happy Birthday, Mom!
*Never leave for school/work without a hot breakfast, and enjoy a snack once you get home.
*Some people actually do drive under the speed limit.
*Never get into an unmade bed
*Triple checking to see if you made a mistake writing a check or if you left a light or other switch on will never change the outcome.
*The Yankees are still the best team in baseball even if the past few years have said otherwise.
*Persistence may not always result in the outcome you hoped for, but at least you can say you did all you could.
*Travel, travel, travel!
*Supporting your kids means so much more than just attending dance recitals.
*Every suit needs a pair of matching heels.
*Love can last forever.
Love you, Mom!
