I know you don't always understand me and the choices I make. Maybe sometimes you don't understand me at all. Most of the time, neither do I.
The truth is, I am more like you than I ever thought I would be. You did your best raising us on so little. We never went without and we didn't ever appreciate the sacrifices you made. Now that I am a Dad, I understand it a lot more.
One thing I know for sure, whether I am playing football, in the band, graduating college, wrestling, preaching, or just being a Dad to your grandkids, I have had no bigger fan on this earth than you.
Thanks for everything, Mom. Happy birthday, and I love you.
