Happy 23rd birthday to my oldest, my first true love and half of my heart and my world. As I look through pictures from your infancy and childhood seeing your smile fills my heart. I love you, always, more than you know.
“I gave birth to you, but you came with no instructions All I knew was that I loved you long before I saw you. I know I made some mistakes and for that, I am sorry, but I was doing the best I could with what I knew. Everything I did for you, I did from love. You are my child, my life, my dreams for tomorrow. I will always LOVE you and there is nothing that could ever destroy my love for you.” (from A Note From A Mother)
“I loved you enough to bug you about where you were going, with whom and what time you would get home. I loved you enough to accept you for what you are, and not what I wanted you to be. But most of all, I loved you enough to say no when you hated me for it. That was the hardest part of all.” (from Erma Bombeck)
