I frequently mention my mom on this blog, otherwise known as “Non-toxic Woman” – my trusty sidekick.
The reality is that she is more like the super-hero – doing feats of greatness, while I am more like the sidekick – cracking the silly jokes. =)
(Although I was the one who climbed in through the tiny bathroom window the day we got locked out…but otherwise she’s had the harder job for most of the last 8 years.)
During her tenure as my full-time caregiver, the amazing Non-Toxic Woman has done the shopping, cooking, laundry, cleaning, massaging, grasshopper killing, cross-country driving, researching, form-filling out, recipe inventing, cheering, encouraging, praying, and so much more!
I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without her selfless, loving, prayerful and devoted care.
So to Non-toxic Woman – today as you celebrate your 70th birthday, I just want to say again –
You are my hero!
I’m so blessed to be your daughter and your friend.
Happy Birthday! =)
My real life super-hero and her sidekick (me). =)
