Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today the woman who gave birth to me, my mentor, my best friend, my confidant, my shoulder to cry on, my tower of strength is 70!!! I can’t believe it – she doesn’t act like a 70 year old and she certainly doesn’t look it. She never goes out of the house without a full face of expertly applied makeup, polished talons, perfect hair, and stylish clothes. And of course I cannot forget her love of bling and her gazillion handbags. I’ve always been able to poke fun at my mom on a regular basis about her ‘WAG’ fashion sense as we are so different. I’m fairly scruffy compared to her, and she’s always been a natural at maintaining her amazing appearance. In high school I had a blue mohawk, combat boots, and ripped jeans, she went to work in red power suits with Dynasty shoulder pads. There have been many times over the years when we haven’t seen eye to eye (mostly to do with my hairstyles) but I wouldn’t change her for the world!

Happy Birthday Mom – I’m so proud of you!

    Happy Birthday, Mrs Gabbard! I also live for the day when we may see in a Dynasty power suit with shoulder pads! Never say never (although in this case…)
