Today, May 4th, is my mom’s birthday and I just wanted to take this opportunity to love and honor her for the amazing mother and woman that she is.
Mom, you are the most beautiful, courageous, generous, and selfless person I know. I am so thankful that God placed me into your family and under your care. From eating pancakes at midnight in Louisiana to random hangouts with our bus driver’s family in New Zealand to backpacking Europe to hanging with our Watoto kids in Uganda to the day you gave me away, there’s never been a dull moment. You inspire me with your strength and positive outlook on life, despite the challenges it inevitably brings. Thank you for laughing at my jokes (even when they’re not funny) and for chatting with me at any hour about the things that really matter in life. Thank you for believing in me every step of the way. You are the best mom any daughter can ask for.
I love you so much. Always your baby,
Syd the Kyd 🙂
And oh yeah… did I mention she plays bass? Badass.
