Do you know my Mom, Loretta Sheppard-Hirst?  She’s an amazing woman.   On a recent birthday,  she presented me with a card that listed the ABCs of me. It’s always been a Blessing for me to see myself through another’s eyes, even when what they’re telling me is not at all what I want to hear. But it’s especially wonderful when the other is Mom.

So here’s what she said in my card.  See how many you think she got right. Just don’t bother arguing your point with her. After all, she is my Mom.
