happy birthday to the one I'm proud to call mom.
Today my mom turned another year older. It is cliche to say that one gets better with age but it's true; my mom's continually being refined by fire and endures it with a smile. She has been my cheerleader through life (although I haven't always appreciated it) and encouraged me to fight the fight. Recently she's instilled in me the importance of hope. I love you mom, thank you for bearing me into this world.
