This picture captures my mom, my older sister, Hayley, and I on Mother’s Day 1988. At less than one year old, I was oblivious to what the next 24 years would bring. From major surgery as a toddler to graduating high school, moving to Dallas, graduating SMU, and starting my first real job, my mom has been my constant pillar of support. I don’t know what the next 24 years will bring, but I know I would not be who I am without my mom.
I love you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!
Every year I have been thankful you’ve been in my life, and every passing year I am more thankful than the last. You’ve been a great mom to me and as grow older, a great friend as well. I love your sense of humor and your straight forward attitude. You are a great travel buddy, and I look forward to many more adventures together!
I admire how hard you work. You are the strongest person I know.
I love how you’re always fixing up your house and working in your garden. I think it’s great how you can grow butterflies like others can grow flowers.
You were there for me when I needed you the most, and one day I hope to return the favor. Thank you for loving me and making me always feel loved.
Thank you for allowing me to be me. Thank you for your support when I decided to break away from the family tradition and found my own niche in the working world. It’s made more an impact on me than I’ll ever be able to express.
I am glad we talk on the phone as often as we do, and I love when you fly up and visit me. It’s a good thing Houston to Dallas is such easy flight to make!
I love you so much. Have a very happy Mother’s Day!
