One of the greatest things she taught me what how to love others, care about them, and be completely selfless. She loves deeply and cares deeply for people. It's a quality I admire most about her. She's one of the hardest working people I've ever known and goes after her dreams too. She's given me the confidence over the years to try new things and "go for it!"
She makes me laugh like no one else, I think fondly of different memories through out the years where she has made life such a joy to live with her. I probably could go on and on all day long about the most amazing things about her, but the things I love the most about her are the little ways she loves me.
The trips to Sonic and Subway. The shopping trips. The vacation memories. The nights around the dinner table where we all laughed till it hurt. The way she's my biggest fan and has always cheered me on. The way she picks out the perfect and best cards for any occasion.
The way she loves my daughter. I love seeing them together. I love seeing my Mom as a Grandma to my own child.

Happy Birthday Mom! I love you more than I can ever express, more than you probably know. Thank you for loving me so much, I couldn't have asked for a more kind, gentle, caring, funny, love able Mom! We love you so much and miss you!
