You are more than just my mother. You're my friend.
You've always been there, even when I anger you to no end.
I've tested your patience and sometimes I'm not always the best son.
But your forgiveness is unlimited, you embrace me with a hug.
I admire your strength and all the things that you do.
You're so fair, honest and kind. I can count on you for some truth.
I realize all the things that you went through for me.
When I was kid, these were things that I couldn't see.
I have so much respect for you now that I understand.
The things that you went through to keep a roof over our head.
So Happy Birthday Mom, I honor you this day.
I love you and that's all I want to say.....
