On my 17th birthday I happen to come over to the house that day. Your mom and a couple of the girls were there. Your mom had made a white cake to dip in chocolate. When she found out it was my birthday she was like, “ Oh! Happy Birthday, I made a cake! Have some!” I know she had made the cake for her girls visiting but it was more than my family had done for my birthday... it truly had touched my heart that day. She was always so kind to me and mothered me like I was hers.
