There's a woman in this world who knows me better than anyone.  She knows most of my secrets, she knows most of my hopes and dreams and desires.  She is at the other end of the phone anytime I call (except when her phone is dead and she can't find the charger.)

She has been through alot in the time that I have known her.  She's had some health issues.  She forgets things sometimes because she has had a few strokes.  Sometimes its annoying, but mostly it's fun because you can listen to how the story changes a little every time she tells it.

I've known her as long as I can remember.  She is the polar opposite of me.  She: social, outgoing, uncomfortable if there isn't someone around to talk to and laugh with.  Me: antisocial, reclusive, happiest when left alone to think.

So how did we end up together?

She's my momma, and I love her.  That's how.

And today is her birthday.  Happy Birthday Mom!!!
