Today is my mama's birthday!
My mother is one of the smartest, funniest, and all around wonderful people I have ever known. Granted, we are two very different people, but that makes our relationship all the more interesting. There's never a dull moment when I'm with my mom, and I'm always greatly impressed at her ability to work hard, work well, and do for our family more than one would think humanly possible.
My mama is not only my mom, but my teacher. She's been homeschooling me for most of my life, and I'm generally blown away by her mind and her love of learning. "Nerd" is a positive term in our house. :)
To be quite honest, I've always had a secret wish. I've wished that when I grow up, I could be just as clever as my mom. If you know her, you get what I mean. She is truly funny, and comes up with hysterical quips within seconds. I've been impressed by this ability my whole life, and she certainly keeps us laughing. But at the same time, she manages to be down-to-earth and hard-working, traits which I also hope to attain in my lifetime.
Mama, I love you dearly, and I wouldn't trade you for another.
