Sometimes She Cries
(Making a kayak stylish.)
Today is my mom's 49th birthday. I know women past a certain age don't generally like to have said age announced, but look at her:
She's beautiful no matter what, but I still can't believe she is almost 50. It doesn't help that people are constantly asking if my mother is my sister, something she loves and I hate.
I won't go overboard with sentimentality here, I just want to say that I have the best mom out there. Some may argue that you, in fact, have the best mom, but I'm sorry. Maybe your mom is a very close second. Did your mom pull you out of class grade school so you two could visit the Ice Caves in upstate NY? Did she nurture your love of jewelry as a youth, teaching you what diamond settings are classic? Was your mom the "cool" one that all your friends wanted to have? Did she always let you have dessert even though she works in the dental field?
(Mom, I know you hate this picture, but it's the only one with the two of us. Not my fault.)
She's the best to shop with, talk with, be with.
Another thing you should know about my mother: she's a little emotional. She cries for a lot of reasons, sometimes I get it and other times I don't, but that's okay. So today's post is in honor of my mother, her birthday, and her occasional tears (I have to request in cards to her that she not cry while reading).
P.S. She totally approved of this theme.
Momma, happy birthday! I love you!
