Day 162 - January 23, 2010

"You look so much like your Mom."

"You look just like Kathy."

"Doesn't she look like Kathy, John?"

I've heard these phrases countless times in my life. From the day a new baby is born, we try to find the similarities to their parents. We hear people say things like, "She has her mother's eyes and her father's ears."

Today, on my mother's birthday, I am thankful that people see the resemblance between me and my Mom because it means that I have an ounce of her kindness, a trace of her beauty, a morsel of her loving heart, and a shred of her nurturing soul.

Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you!
