You'll always be my baby

Tomorrow will mark 15,695 straight days -- plus a few more, considering leap years -- that you’ve made me proud to be your mother. Even though I'm the parent and you're the youngest child, the baby, there are still things you teach me. You set the bar high with your sweetness, your kindness, and your natural gift for making others feel comfortable. Those qualities, plus a good head on your shoulders and a terrific sense of humor, make you quite a package -- beautiful inside and out.


Happy birthday, baby girl! I hope you're as happy as you've always made me, and I hope you know how much I love you.

  4. That is beautiful, that you let her know she still makes you happy. If only all parents realized, that their "adult children", still need to hear those words....especially "I love you".
    Happy Day to her.
