Today is my mother's birthday. My mother. A woman full of grace, beauty and laughter.
With sparkling brown Irish eyes, a witty and, okay, sometimes naughty sense of humor;
with her brothers- 1979?
with her brothers- 2009
Who shows unconditional love for us all, is an amazing cook and has a way of making any house a home.
And this barely scratches the surface of the wonder that she is.
It can't possibly describe the warmth she exudes, the patience she shows, the unique and innovative feats she performs, the crazy laughter she laughs, or the stories she tells that has us doing the same.
Here's to you, Mom. What a lucky girl I am.
