One of the most important people in my world is celebrating a birthday today. Thousands of words could be written about how wonderful she is--as an artist, teacher, entrepreneur, and role model.
To me, she is beautiful. A source of strength, guidance, comfort, wisdom. She is one of the reasons I dream big. As they say, you have to cast off the lines and sail away from the safe harbor to find adventure. She is one of the reasons I think that's even possible. She isn't afraid to try something new, or dare to do something big--and she has sacrificed a lot so that I can do big things, too.
Yes, thousands of words could be written about this fascinating woman. For now, I'll simply say:
Happy birthday, Mom. I love you.
