ok. i lied before. she's not 42. that would've meant she had me when she was 14. and heidi is 10 years older than me. but i told her a while ago - it doesn't matter how old she is, as long as we keep having birthdays.
my mom is my hero. she's an amazing woman. she's smart, she's fun, she's happy. happiness is a quality in a person that i didn't realize was just a given til i left home.
she's a life saver. last year, when my world fell apart she came out and spent a few weeks with me, putting it back together again. all of her kids are grown up now, but she hasn't stopped taking care of us, spoiling us, entertaining us. we're all so lucky to have her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA. I LOVE YOU!!!
