I hope your monday went well. It was my sweet mother's birthday today so if anyone besides her reads this, send her a million thought kisses! She is the most loving and sweet woman in the world and she has made my life one filled with passion and curiosity. She is the most intelligent woman I know and has always shown me first hand what it means to be classy.
My mother has been there through countless tears and has never lost her faith in me, even when I had lost it in myself.
A couple of years ago, when I was at my first college, I was having a very difficult time with some things and I felt very anxious about opening up to my mother about the intimate problems I was facing in my life.
One of the best decisions I have ever made, ever.
My mother rushed to my side and was there for every step of the way. She provided so much guidance and love. Completely put her life on hold to help me straighten out mine. Answered her phone seven times a day and would talk to me for as long as I needed to, repeated conversations I needed to have, listened and listened and listened.
She was truly the definition of a best friend. It was one of the most upsetting times of my life and she helped me turn it into a transfer to a better college and ultimately a better life.
My mother has given up her career to take care of my brother and me and make sure we were always happy and loved. Her selflessness is to be admired by all. I love you, Mom. Happy birthday.
