I was born 48 years ago today.
I start the first day of my 49th year of being daughter,
wife, mom, sister, grand-daughter, cousin, niece, friend, artist. All these things and more describe who I am to you.
But, I celebrate you on this day.
You have been my inspiration, my strength and witness to my faith in all that is true and good.
This day is for you who share my tears of joy and pain, and everything in between. A testament to the person I am today.
Without you, I cannot be me.
