Happy Birthday Mama Jetplane

Happy 50th Birthday to the BEST mom in the whole wide world....yes I may be a little biased but OH WELL... She is wonderful.
She was a young, single mother with 2 kids and a nasty ex-husband that refused to pay child support. She is a devout Catholic, breast cancer survivor who loves to cook, garden, and lay out in her pool with a wine cooler (yes my mom loves her a wine cooler). She is a hell of a lady that prefers to wear heels and jewelry no matter where she is going. That's my mom and I love her....even though she refused to accept I had straight hair and made me get perms...in the kitchen sink.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Thank you for putting up with me during my teenage years, I was quite a handful.

Thank you for taking me to the New Kids on the Block when you had the flu.

Thank you for showing me how much love can come from a single mom.

Thank you for allowing us to attend private school, dance lessons, play sports, etc. on 1 income.

Thank you for paying for my college education.
Thank you for making the best Halloween costumes.

Thank you for being a shoulder to cry on when I felt the world around me falling down.
Thank you for attending every one of my dance recitals, contests, and pageants.

Thank you for reminding me to not let stupid boys get me down.

Thank you for showing me what a strong woman is.

Thank you for teaching me how to cook.
Thank you for driving to Indianapolis with me to pick out my first apartment and loaning me furniture to fill it with.
Thank you for showing me how one can go through so much and still remain positive.
Thank you for every single thing you have ever done for me and my lil brother.
Thank you for being our mother.

Love you.

So sweet. As a mom, that makes me cry. It sounds like our childhoods were very similar. My mother is such a strong woman, and now that I'm a mom, I don't know how she did it along. Happy birthday Mama Jetplane!
