Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my Mom's birthday, and I am sending her the all the best wishes for a fantastic celebration today.

I am so proud of my Mom, and she gets more fearless each day. This past year has been a roller-coaster of experiences for her - from the high of watching her son graduate (finally!) from college and celebrating by skydiving to the low of losing her home in Hurricane Rita. Despite the challenges, though, she never gives up.

Shirly Ann, I am so proud that you are my Mother. You remind me everyday that life is a gift, and you encourage me to follow my dreams and whims and impulses. I love you so much, and I am proud of the person that you are.
