From Mo...

3.14.2011
So my mom sent me this and had me BAWLING at work. I really am blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. I swear this woman of mine had to have been my road dog in past lives. She's just too groovy for words. Growing up with a teen mom definitely had its advantages. We're close in age. (She had me when she was 17. I was the baby the doctors told her she'd never be able to have.) We're just close:
