Having a mother like you growing up was one of the greatest gift and biggest advantage anyone could ever give me in life. The person I am today is so much because of you.  You are such a strong, funny and beautiful women… I am so very proud to call you mom. My siblings and I are some of the luckiest kids I know to have you in our lives and to have you as a mother. Our humor, happiness, and unconditional love and support for one another is all due to you and dad. You are the light of our family and you are truly my best friend. Happy 50th Birthday and Happy Mother’s Day! I love you.
