Thanks Mom

Somewhere in my teen years, it dawned on me that birthday celebrations were a bit backwards. Let's face it, my Mom did the lion's share of the work on the morning of my birth. With that realization, I decided to establish a new tradition of giving my Mom flowers and a card on my birthday as a thank you for bringing me into this world.

Unfortunately, in my Hawaiian haze, I was little late getting out my Mom's card this year, so to ensure a timely thank you, a post on the blog seemed to be the next best thing.

So here it goes....Mom, thanks for all that hard work some 43 years ago. And thank you for being such a great source of support, love, guidance, and on occassion, a much needed swift kick in the pants (not literally mind you). I'm lucky to call you my Mom.
