This morning I woke up and called my mom—today she turns 50! After a “thank you for the birthday wishes!” I responded with, “You’re halfway to 100! Can you believe it?” She just sighed heavily on the other end and said, “Ohhh man. I don’t really want to think about it.” (She would kill me if I knew I was proclaiming her age on the internet!)
I am so incredibly thankful for my mother. She is absolutely everything to me, and I have no idea what I would do without her. I can constantly count on her to be there for every problem, every concern, and every complaint. She overwhelms me with how wise, smart, and beautiful she is. I am so thankful to be able to spend today with her, on her big 5-0!
