Thank You For Being A Friend

See this beautiful lady?

This is my mom, and today was her birthday.

I recently read a parenting book that made the point, during one chapter, that parents should not be their childrens' friends. I guess I understood the logic behind it as the author laid out his argument. But I've got to tell you, I don't really believe it. My mom is my best friend, and she has been for as long as I can remember.

I'd have been lost time and time again had it not been for you, Mom. You've provided me with everything I could have ever needed...physically, emotionally and mentally.  I look up to you....always have.  I admire your class, enjoy your humor, appreciate your love, marvel at your abilities, cherish your advice and value our times together.  I'm just so very proud to be your daughter, and I love you more than I'll ever really be able to tell you.

So, today especially, Mom, my hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow.  Thank you for being a friend!!  (click for cute tribute)  Here's to a year of easy sailing, great times and good health!!

Makes my heart smile.....

What a wonderful post! I lost my mother at age 7 and was raised by my grandmother. She has passed on now, but she was my best friend! I could tell her anything and she always listened and was full of wisdom. She was always there for me.
