My mom has a fantastic collection of her paper dolls from when she was a girl. Movie stars with plenty of glamorous outfits to try on and change into. When I was a child, she would sit with me for hours telling me who the stars were and helping me find the right dresses for the dolls.
As I celebrate her birthday today, that is just one of a million memories on my mind. I feel fortunate to have this steel-spined, funny, kind, determined woman in my life.
