This woman right here has been my rock my whole life. She has been my source of comfort, guidance, tough love, and never ending kindness. She's pushed me to be a hard working and caring person, to never give up on myself or give in to doubt. She always has wanted what is best for me, and at times I didn't always see that; but in the end she was always right. She's a tough one, who has managed to overcome and learn from all that life has thrown at her. She has the biggest heart, and showers her family and friends with her endless love. Today we celebrate you, Mom, turning 50 years young. I love you, miss you, and thank you for all that you have done for our family. Happy birthday!
