Although it is late in the day, I wanted to get this in before the day is over.
Happy Birthday Mom!
To celebrate Mom’s birthday, the four of us had dinner with my parents. I also baked a red velvet cake with vanilla frosting (photos to follow soon). Since the boys were sleeping when I finished it, I make it in a style NHL would appreciate. I wrote Nana with three hearts in M&Ms! As a birthday present I am going to take mom to a girls night out. Perhaps we can find a play that we both want to see at the theater institute or catch a movie (something Dad will not do).
Mom, thank you for all that you have done for me. Although we may not always see things eye-to-eye I always know that your love for me and my family is there unconditionally. You have taught me the importance of family life and how to stick up for what I believe in, especially when it comes to the well being of my children. We are so lucky to live so close to you and Dad. There is a special bond that you have with the boys, especially JSL. I owe you so much for saving my little guy’s life back in February. You kept your cool and did what needed to be done and saved my baby. I cry just thinking about what could have been if you had not rushed over when we called frantic. That is just the way you have always been – there for us no matter what.
Thank you for everything and know that I love you always and forever.
