That is beautiful Anthony. I am sure your mom is as proud of you as you are of her.
I was 64 yrs old on Thursday and my youngest daughter gave me the most beautiful card with such nice words, I almost cried from emotion. I said to her.."Do you really mean this or just being mushy?" She said, "Of course I mean it!!" It feels so good to be appreciated. I know she had to read a lot of cards before picking out that particular one.
May you have your mom for a long, long time!!! God bless.
