Happy Birthday Mom! :)

Today is a very special day... What seemed like so far off in the distance at one time.... that we were told she would not live to see... SHE DID!  Today we celebrated the life of a very special person who brought me into the world and nurtured my creative spirit, my mom Linda.  For her... I will forever be grateful.  I am over the moon that our friends and family (and some I don't even know) went out of their way to make it a very special and memorable day for my mom and my family.  From my aunt Cheryl, who goes into the care center faithfully to wash and fix mom's thinning hair and painting all her frail nails... to my sister in law Kim, who sent her the cutest purple slippers that she rocked all I day - It will be a day we will never forget and always treasure!  How strong, inspiring, and beautiful is my mom!  I am so proud of her for showing me strength when she was at her weakest state, for not giving up when others gave up on her and for teaching me to "believe" (hence my tattoo on my wrist!), and most importantly...
for not letting cancer destroy her amazing spirit!
 I love you mom!  Happy 62nd birthday! XOXOX

(Sorry I do not have any great photos yet - this came from my brother's cell phone... 
But you can still see just how beautiful see is anyway!)
