I was at work before and rushed so I wanted to wait and do this when I could do a good job of it.
My mom?s birthday is today and like my dad, she?s taught me a whole lot of stuff. For instance, she taught me to appreciate culture. My love of books, art, theatre, ballet, and classical music all come from my mother. Not bad for a woman who doesn?t consider herself an ?educated? person. She taught me to be a strong Democrat. She taught me how to pick my battles. She taught me to love NPR and frozen chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick. She taught me how to make a fist and throw a punch. She taught me that it?s better to have a cat on your lap than a clean house (a philosophy I still live by).
For the above and all the others I?ve forgotten or couldn?t think of, thank you and happy birthday, Mom.
