Happy Birthday Mom

Dear Mom:

I know you don't always understand me and the choices I make. Maybe sometimes you don't understand me at all. Most of the time, neither do I.

The truth is, I am more like you than I ever thought I would be. You did your best raising us on so little. We never went without and we didn't ever appreciate the sacrifices you made. Now that I am a Dad, I understand it a lot more.

One thing I know for sure, whether I am playing football, in the band, graduating college, wrestling, preaching, or just being a Dad to your grandkids, I have had no bigger fan on this earth than you.

Thanks for everything, Mom. Happy birthday, and I love you.

Give your Mom and happy birthday shout-out from me! She looks fabulous!

Funny how the older we get the more we appreciate what they have been through.

Wow. "Mrs. Balls" is still hot. Hasn't changed a bit! I used to love my visits to the house in Pine Ridge. Brings back great memories.
