Dad, Mom and DramaGirl - Taken after DramaGirl's performance in Annie a couple of years ago
Today is mom's birthday.
I won't say how many she's had.
She is a great mom. She is always there for me. She has always encouraged me to be my best. And she has inspired me by her perseverance, and her loving, loyalty to her family. I (hopefully) inherited some of these traits from her and they have certainly served me well, as a runner, as a mother, a friend, and in my professional life.
