Happy Birthday Mom...
Mom, on your birthday I celebrate you being you,
my extraordinary mother.
You have made such a difference, created so much good in my life!
I celebrate your smart mothering, your clever,
creative methods of gently molding your beloved child into your vision of me:
a strong, capable adult,
an unselfish person of good character.
I celebrate your boundless physical and emotional energy...
loving me, leading me, supporting me,
lifting me when I fall.
On your birthday, Mom,
I celebrate the best thing about my life...
having you as my mother.
A poem by Joanna Fuchs
