Happy birthday to my mommy! She turns…older today. Through the years we’ve had our differences but always loved each other. I’m sure I wasn’t a complete joy to raise, but she managed to love, support and accept me unconditionally. Mom taught me to always write “thank you” notes, enjoy a good joke (especially puns), to admit when I’ve done something wrong then get over it, to respect others, and to vote Democrat (ok, that’s a joke). Mom’s always been a great supporter of my work – especially when I left the “real world” work force to become a metalsmith.
Thanks for everything mom! I hope you have a wonderful birthday today and many, many more!
