  73. You knocked down the walls of my bedroom when I moved to college and made the room a living room. So, when I came home I had no place to sleep. It wasn’t fun then, but it’s a funny story now to tell people. So, thank you for that.
  74. In the middle of a serious moment? My mom has a song for that! She can relate a song to any situation. Give her a second to find it on YouTube.
  75. She literally will dance on any dance floor to any song.
  76. She eats ribs to the bare bone and it’s borderline embarrassing. But, as an adult – it’s fun to watch now.
  77. Mom will try any style and isn’t afraid to bring back any trend.
  78. I love looking at old photos of my mom in the 70s. She was HAWT.
  79. In my 40s, I am still not allowed to make the main course of Christmas dinner even though I host every single holiday. That’s ok. I think it’s cute.

  92. You always feel like a young mom to me. I never really think about your age.
  93. You make the best soup when I am sick.
  94. You never blinked an eye when I wanted to start a new hobby as a kid. Every season something new.
  95. You didn’t have much to give … and you gave it all to me. I know now.
  96. You still are buried in the hurt and yet you still show up for everyone. I see you.
  97. You let me go on a two-week trip all around Europe with my friend when I graduated high school. I mean, I would never do that, but that was cool.
