I know you don’t read this anymore but I just wanted to say Happy Birthday on your special day! And I want to tell you I love you. [I’m trying really hard to not apologize for anything since you told me to stop doing that.]

I hope you have a great day and that your year is simply wonderful! I hope you reach every single goal you’ve made for yourself in 2011 and that each new day holds something special to let you know you are loved and appreciated.

Make it a great one!

Love, Mom
