Mom – my role model, my hero, my rock:
Happy, happy birthday to you, the best woman I know. You are everything I hope to be. And though you’ve been through so much, you still manage to keep remain positive and see the best in everyone.
To me you are a super hero, an ass kicker of Breast Cancer, a raiser of two very strong-willed girls, wife to an even stronger-willed husband and ‘GiGi’ to an extremely rambunctious grandson. You not only take care of all of us, but everyone else. From parents to son-in-law, from aunts to great-nephews. So to you, on your birthday, I say thank you for being the wonderful woman you are.
Thank you for showing me how to be a good wife and good mom. For showing me that, sometimes, it’s better to be silent. But, also teaching me when to speak up and fight back.
You are such an amazing person and everyone who knows you agrees. I love you so very much and I am so proud to be your daughter.
Thank you for teaching me how to be a good person.
Thank you for teaching me to have faith in something greater than myself.
Thank you for teaching me how to be a fighter.
Thank you for teaching me how to be brave.
But, most of all, thank you for teaching me how to love.
I love you so much, mommy. Happy birthday.
Your “Big Girl”
