29 years ago today...

I gave birth to one of the most amazing people I know. My daughter. I don't love her any more than I love my boys - and I'm immensely proud of them as well - but the bond shared between mothers and daughters are a different kind of bond than those shared between mothers and sons.

Amy has grown into a wonderful woman, an amazing mother, and I couldn't be more proud of her. Since her divorce, she's gotten her BS degree (nearly 4.0 GPA) and is receiving her MBA degree on May 8th (3.95 GPA). She has a bright future ahead of her. She's accomplished so much with very little outside assistance, she's doing an outstanding job as a single parent - parenting a child with special needs is tough for a two-parent family and she's doing it on her own (yes, we help but he's still "her" responsibility).

Happy Birthday, Amy!

Happy Birthday Amy - and congratulations on such a wonderful job with you and your family's life - with more people like you in the world life would be a much nicer place to live and to think how much we would all have eachother.

Hope your day is everyhing you wanted it to be.

I can feel your pride coming across the computer! Good for you, and GOOD FOR AMY! Congratulations Amy and Happy Belated Birthday! Being a mom is hard, being a single mom is harder and single working mom plus going to school is the hardest. KUDOS TO YOU AMY!

I am very close to my daughter, too, who will be 29 in November.
