Today is my mother's birthday. I can't tell you anything more than I told her, so I'm going to share with you the first few pages of the book my brother and I put together for her birthday. She's amazing.
I'm awake. I believe in the "WOW Factor" of every day. Remember in the book The Color Purple when Shug says, "I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it"? That's the bus I'm on. Join me, won't you?
Also, I'm a woman whose mind moves not unlike a Wham-O SuperBall thrown into a small room by an extremely hyperactive 7-year-old boy named Darren who is all hopped up on Mountain Dew and Smarties. Srsly.
