For Mommio

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful mother! Seriously, isn’t she stunning?

On her birthday last year, I wrote:

You’re the best mom a girl could ask for, and I’m lucky to have been raised by such a smart, funny, independent and classy woman.

You’ve taught me to live consciously, to be wise with my money, to be respectful of my health, to love reading and learning. You gave me a place to live when I wanted to fly away from the nest, but didn’t know quite where or how to land. When I was ready, you supported me in finding my own way. I can never thank you enough for everything.

And this year I want to add:

Thank you for not only helping me find my wings, but encouraging me — even though I know it was hard for you — to fly and fly and fly so very far away. I wasn’t brave enough until you gave me that final push.

I’ll be home soon, momma bird. Can’t wait to give you a huge, belated-birthday hug.

Lots of love from across the world and under the sea,

❤ Devie-Doodle
