I wouldn’t be here without you, ma’am

Ma'am, I want to wish you a very
happy birthday today, but also thank
you for all of your guidance and
mentoring over the years.

To me, you are a remarkable woman
and are the very best at what you do.
I certainly wouldn’t be where I am
now without your input.

Many happy returns, ma’am, and I
hope you enjoy your special day.
