Happy birthday mom. I wish you were still here so I could wish it to you in person and give you a big hug.
Remember that time I put together a bad homemade “surprise party” when you turned 36? I put streamers and balloons on the door and made a big sign that said “36” on it and invited your friend from next door over. You were so embarassed. Could you imagine what I would do to you now with 19 more years of experience? You always gave us the best birthday parties – I wish I could give you one just as awesome.
I wish I could have done more for you. I am so thankful for you. I miss you. I love you.
