today is my mom's birthday! my mom is such an awesome person, in so many ways. my childhood was rich because of her. she instilled in me, a sense of curiousity, love of travel, love of learning, zest for life, love of words, music and the arts, respect for others cultures, religions, and traditions, and compassion for our fellow man. she taught me about being true to my self-a concept that took me a while to understand, by the way. she loves me unconditionally and is my constant rock. words seem to fail me when it comes to conveying the depth of my admiration and adoration of her. but my heart is full and i hope that thru my deeds and actions, she feels it. so happy birthday mom, wish i was with you, but we'll be together soon. and as always we'll celebrate!
i love you!
