Today is my mom's 75th birthday. She is just amazing, and I am so proud to be her daughter. She is the smartest woman on the planet, and the most generous and kind-hearted. She is a very faithful and strong woman who has borne hard times with resolute determination and hard work. I hope I am living my life in a way that will make her proud of me.
Isn't she beautiful?
Here she is in 1934 with her mother and grandmother in Boulder City, Nevada. Her dad was helping to build Hoover (Boulder) Dam.
Here are my parents as newlyweds in 1952. So cute.
Happy Birthday, Mom!
