"Mother" - Ashanti

one day late

and

4.4 million dollars short.

Happy.  [70th] Birthday. To. MY. Mom.

Mom.
Nana.
Nurse.
Psychologist.
Chef.

f r i e n d.

Here are only a few of the reasons I freaking adore you Mom.

* I love that you check on me.  Every day.
* I love this photo - one of my 5 favorites.
[love that you are relaxing with me & I really would like that wood paneling.]
* I love that you were there when Peanut was born.
* I love that you and Madeline were friends - because it gave me my first best friend at birth.
[but honestly, what did you feed me? I'm a freaking giant]
* I love that you are funny.
* I love that you always encourage me.

* supportive - like in everything.  I know you'll hate this photo because you've lost some mad poundage since then but . . . . I love that you drove to Tucson to see my legs cramp up . . .

[note, Dad's awesome sunglasses]

* I love that just you and I Farmer Fanny, went to Puerto Vallarta

* I love this stealth looking photo of you.
[ya, my time has expired, I dare you to give me a ticket.]
* I love the relationship you have with Peanut.
* I love how many photos I have of you and her together.

* I love that you were an amazing [are still are an amazing] cook.

[love the top of the head kiss]
* I love what an awesome grandma you are . . . I mean seriously . . what other grandma does this . . ? . . .

* I love this photo of you and I [yes, I even love my smile lines].  But we should probably work on NON-race day photos of you and I together.

* I'm thankful that after this happy photo - they didn't get the "after" photo where I shoved it in your face and you got ummmmm, not so happy at me.

* Thank you for doing 90% of what it took to make the 24 hour run a HUGE success.      *DISCLAIMER - I HATE and LOVE this photo*

Hate: because seriously, I look beyond horrible.
Love: because I remember exactly what I had said to you and Shar 20 seconds earlier.

* Thank you for the hot breakfast every school day.  Yes, EVERY.
* Thank you for taking me to aerobics with you.  For without you I'd have never known canned green beans and beets ever could have been used as weights.
* Thank you for traveling with me for Junior Olympic [Austin, Vegas, Tampa . . ]
* Thank you for letting me hold your hand when nothing else would ever / could ever take it's place.
* Thank you for having my back - when sometimes - others didn't.
* Thank you for having another child.  I know the story well.  I'm super glad "emily" came. [my brother and sisters???? well, I know they are learning to love me.] ;)

Happy 70th to you MY Mom.
I adore you.

With all the freaking love I've got,
Emz

I love this post. It is beautiful. I love your mom and I don't even know her, but I would say 'Happy Birthday!' Your relationship with your mom reminds me of what I had with my own mother. I miss her terribly, and I know how lucky you are to have such a beautiful relationship with your mother. Beautiful tribute to her. Thank you so much for sharing her with all of us! :)
