“Half way to 112”
Every year on this day I mention to my mom as a joke that she is half way to a certain age..kinda my ongoing birthday joke with her.
Yes today is my wonderful mother’s birthday and I couldn’t think of a better reason to thank the most amazing woman in the world for everything that she has done for me.
I often find myself at a loss for words when a friend mentions a lack of empowerment, support, or have a general complaint about their parental unit and ask why my mom is so cool and supports me on whatever adventure is at hand. I can only describe it as, “Dude you can’t compare her to other parents…she doesn’t count. You can’t put a major league team on a little league field and ask why they are so much better than the others..” She is simply the best. In a whole other league.
Pepper is the Dream Team, All-Star Lineup, and Hall of Fame all in one. I have never had an aspiration that she did not fully support me in or a dream that she didn’t tell me to follow. Never have I had to second guess whether I wanted to attempt something because she always says, “If it is really what you want to do then do it.”
In the process of raising us six crazy bastards most people would be nuts..some people may tell you that she actually is. But chances are they are just jealous of her awesome personality, beauty, and general amazingness. Easily the most spectacular mom I could ever ask for.
I have always been a Momma’s Boy and couldn’t be more proud of it. I can’t wait for the next 56 years of being her favorite son and traveling the world with her.
Thank you for empowering me to follow my dreams, be a better person, and providing a more than comfortable and blessed upbringing.
Happy Birthday Mom!
You are half way to 112..and the Grassfed Way will help you get there:)
I love you!
