It's time for cake and balloons...

My mother is the strongest, bravest person I know. She grew up in Mexico in extreme poverty, came to this country through illegal (and very dangerous) channels, worked hard labor factory jobs, and still managed to raise two (rather difficult) children.

she has a wonderful sense of style, even with no money. she sewed all of her own dresses!

We have not always had the best relationship, but she has always been with me... Even when I didn't want her around. 

and for that, I am grateful.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother! ♥
