notes on living a life


"We begin to find and become ourselves when we notice how we are already found, already truly, entirely, wildly, messily, marvelously who we were born to be."  ~ Anne Lamott 

Here is what I know for sure. . . 
~ you are the one who made me a mother
~ you have a huge heart and always put others before yourself
~ you have taught me to look at my motives and think of others instead of myself 
~ you are the first one to jump in and help me around the house when you are home
~ you are an amazing "father" 
~ you are now a college graduate (congratulations!) 
~ you love to fish, you love to talk fish, you love to watch people fish, you love fish
~ you can talk to anyone and make them feel comfortable 
~ you love mac and cheese and peanut butter but have to be reminded to eat sometimes
~ you have taught me it's sometimes all about the accessories, the hat, the shoes, the ink
~ you love deeply and with a full heart 
~ you are my hero. . .  

Happy birthday, 34 will be amazing, I just know it! 
Love, Mom
