Hey, did I mention that the other day was my MOM’S BIRTHDAY?! I didn’t think so. Even worse, I haven’t sent her a present yet. If you see this, D, Happy Birthday!!! Your daughter loves you! 🙂
While I’m on the topic, I’ll just brag about my mom for a minute. Let’s see, she ran a 50 mile race this year, she came in second, which was disappointing, because last time she ran she came in FIRST!! She is brilliant and got a math scholarship to college, which she went to when she was 16. She sometimes does not think she is as brilliant as she is (see: “came in second” above.)
She is usually pretty quiet in group settings and people find her amiable and likeable. She can become fascinated with things like bugs and genealogy; she’s in touch with her inner nerd. She also has a very earthy side and likes to hike, run, and be outdoors. I know this sounds a little like a personal, but I’m sorry, she is already married. She is married to a semi-southern all gentleman who perfectly suits her. Whenever I think about him I just fill up with gratitude that they found each other. Thanks, B, for being my mom’s honey. Thanks Grandma and Granddad for having my mom.
