Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is Sambo's birthday.
I'm going to tell you my 9 favorite things about her
because 9 is my favorite number.

#1 Her house always smells like home,
no matter where she lives.
When I come back from her house
and open my suitcase
I’m wrapped in the smells of M-O-M.

#2 I love it when people we know say,
OMG it must have been SO cool to have her
as your mom growing up.”
I just smile……
......because…....... was

#3 She always lets me have the
most buttery bite of her sourdough toast.

#4 I love that growing up we woke up to
Louis Armstrong
and cooked dinner to the
Gypsy Kings.

#5 From Junior High to College
I had a lot of friends
who she was a surrogate mom for.
I love that I never wanted
or needed
a surrogate mom,
because mine was more than enough.

#6 I love that she washes
our Christmas jammies
every year before she wraps them
so that they smell yummy
and are ready to wear
when we open them on Christmas Eve.

#7 I love that we have the same face.

#8 I love that when I’m freaking out
she plays the
‘worst case scenario game’
so that things
don’t look so bad anymore.

#9 I love that
all of the things I do
that are creative, cute, smart or funny
have usually been
critiqued, edited, tweaked or polished
by my mom.
My BEST work
is a result of her help and guidance.
