This photo of you is one of my favorites. I say that about every photo of you though, don't I? So joyful, hopeful, and with the most youthful spirit. These are the things that you have embodied since I've known you. I consider myself one of the luckiest to have you as my mom. You love to laugh which is ideal for this child of yours who lives to make others laugh. You encourage me to be who I am and you tell me that who I am is one of your favorites. That is the best gift for this free spirited, yet sometimes unsure daughter. You are strong, brave and have done so many firsts over this past year that I stand in awe. Happy Mothers Day to one who deserves endless celebration. You are a treasure and I love you always.
