Mim is one of my favorite people in the entire world, because she is awesome, smart, strong, loyal, and hilariously witty.
We had our rough points but we both grew up a bit, got to know each other better, and took care of our brain chemicals so we could both move forward and be not just mother and daughter, but best friends as well.
She's been with me my whole life, cheering me on when I tried to accomplish something, cheering me up when things didn't work out, giving me all the tools I needed to become a succcessful adult, and always believing in me, even when I didn't believe in myself.
Plus she's pretty.
She is the best road-tripper, an awesome philosopher and mathematician, and she makes really good pancakes and biscuits from scratch (and almost nothing else)(sorry Mim, it's true).
She gave me many genetic traits for which I am grateful, but even more for which I am NOT grateful, namely, IBS and carpal tunnel, among others.
Basically, she's just awesome. And that's that.Happy Birthday, Mim!
