1978?

Dear Mom,
Today is your birthday, I’m sure you’re aware. If you are reading this now, you may think it is just any other day. It is not. You are 60 today.
More than your age, you are these things to me…
A passionate reader.
An avid bookworm.

A listening ear.
An objective view.

A teenage girl’s best friend in dealing with matters of the heart.
A teller of stories pulled from your past.

An open mind to your children’s wild dreams.
A soft place to land when things fall apart.

Mom and Me 4
1979?

A mystery to me at times.
A closed door without a peephole.

A comical mind.
A target of many jokes.

A cook with a magic touch.
A maker of mexican rice unparalleled.

A player of poker.
A professional “BINGO!” caller.

A lover of music.
An American Bandstander from way back.

A lover of films.
A zealous movie buff.

A gentle grandmother.
A generous supplier of comfort and solace.

An unsurpassable example.
A wife, a sister, a mother, a daughter, a friend.

I love you, mom. Happy Birthday.
