From the beautiful little flaxen-haired girl in the pink dress:
To the young girl smiling in a school photo and playing in a kiddie pool:
....to the newly minted Mrs. Browning.....
to a mother, quite understandably exhausted:
She's the best friend a person could ask for and a helluva nurse to boot....
...and the most awesome grandmother in the world!
She's a lot of things to me. She's not just my mom, she's a friend. She's the woman I turn to when I need a level head with a splash of cold water or a shoulder to cry on and a comforting word of advice. She's got a will of iron and a feisty soul and more smarts in her little finger than most people I know. I'm a lucky lady to call her my mom. I love you, Mom.
