Today is my Mom’s birthday.
If I could, I’d make all her birthday wishes come true. I’d buy her a beautiful house–one that sits right on the beach, so she can wake up to sunshine and sand and surf every single day for the rest of her life.
I’d shower her with the two things she loves the most: chocolate and puppies.
(Although very carefully, so the puppies couldn’t eat the chocolate. That’s bad for them.)
I wouldn’t just give her a bouquet of flowers. I’d give her an entire FIELD of flowers–each happy petal meant to make her smile.
If I could grant wishes, I’d give her everything her heart desires, even those things that are impossible. And I wish I could. I really really wish I could.
I hope she’ll be happy with a big hug, instead.
I love you, Mom! I know today won’t be as bright and shiny as it should be, but I’ll still be celebrating your life today, and every day. XO
