Happy Birthday Mom
Sixty-One years ago today my Mother was born and the world became a much better place. I am continuously amazed by her strength and toughness, her ability to handle every punch life has thrown at her (and life has landed some real haymakers) and always get back up off the mat every time. In addition, she taught me left from right, right from wrong, how to drive, how to treat a lady, a respect for life in all its forms and a million other big and small things that made me into the person I am today. It also puts my mind at ease to know that she will be there to help me with the most difficult challenge I'll ever have - doing as good a job raising my son as she did raising hers.
