Happy birthday to the greatest woman I've ever known.
There are no words to express the gratitude I have for all the blood sweat and tears you put into raising me and our Rhino.
There were times when you were my only fan, and you will always be my biggest.
You have ALWAYS pushed me to pursue my dreams and to do what I love, whatever it may be at the moment.
It didn't matter if I wanted to carve sculptures out of carrots and soap bars, collect every beanie baby, find the perfect dress for the school dance, build a science project, sing from the mountain tops, or ride my bike without training wheels.... Whatever it was, you have always been there on the sidelines cheering me on.
You love me more than I'll ever need anyone to love me on this earth.
When you felt you weren't being the mother of the year, I didn't even notice, you've always been my hero regardless.
My failures may break me but they never even phase you.
You believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself.
And you gave me the greatest gift of all.
The gift of music
You took me to see Israel Kamakawiwo'ole in concert when I was 6.
You bought me my first ukulele at age 7, and my first guitar at 15, you've listened to every single song, sat in every audience of every talent show, casting call, and gig.
You showed me the importance of letting your hair down, blasting the radio, and singing at the top of your lungs in the car, the shower, while cleaning the house, even at work.
For nearly 10 years I haven't gone more than a week without playing my guitar.
My music nurtured me when I wouldn't let anything else, including you.
It made me happy when nothing else could.
I continue to do what I love because you are proud of me.
I'm successful only because of you.
For your birthday gift, pick the dates that you wish to come to Hawaii and I will book your flight. I don't care if you want to hop on a plane tomorrow, figure it out, and I'll get you here.
Happy birthday mama. My rock, my creator, my everything. I love you. 🎁🎈🎂 #Familyovereverything #Hauolilahanau #Comehome
