Happy 57th Birthday Ma!

So today is my mother's 57th Birthday!

And I am so blessed to still have her with me...My mother is my BEST Friend...the end all to be all to be...I love that woman like no other!

And I know its because she loves me like no other. She has made sacrifice after sacrifice after sacrifice after sacrifice to make sure that I did better than she did.

She took me any and everywhere with her..showed me different things in life, places, told me I can do any and everything as long as I put my mind to it...
She didn't graduate from college, so she made sure I did!
In fact she worked TWO jobs my freshman year (so did my dad) to make sure I didn't go without...and after that I made sure I PAID for school myself!
She taught me to value myself, to love myself and to appreciate EVERYTHING because I am owed nothing...
She taught me my values, my morals...
She has never lived alone, so she fought with my Dad so that I could move out!
She doesn't trip off of designer clothes or shoes, but she would always made sure I had what I wanted because as she puts it "I am just like my father when it comes to clothes, shoes, HATS and boots..." and I really am...
There are things that NO BODY knows about me BUT my mother...
She is so secure in who she is that I can post her age on the web and she doesn't give a flying place in space.
My mother is the sweetest thing, but she ain't NO punk either...she will curse you forwards and backwards and then TELL where you can go and find YOURSELF...she is too funny...
Most importantly, she taught me how to be a woman, just by watching her...

She is GOD fearing, confident, strong, beautiful inside and out...

She keeps it real, really real...but there is nothing you can ever do that she won't love you and support you...

She is the BEST FRIEND I could ever have... I think I said that already but she really is...we talk day and night...all day every day...she is my support system...my structure...that voice in my head that keeps pushing me to become the BEST woman I can be...comfortable in my own skin because I am wonderful...(according to my Ma)

I am who I am because of HER....I will be who I will be because of her...

So Happy Birthday Polly...I love you!!!!!
