notes on a simple life

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUSTIN

"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
