Mom's Birthday


Life is flying by so fast that I realized I never did a post for my mom's birthday! Gasp! Without further ado, Happy Birthday to my sweet mama..

I've always thought my mom is beautiful though I don't know if she knows that. 

My mom is so many things to me, more than I could ever put into words, but here are some of my favorite things about her.  She's got a temper you don't want to mess with--I inherited it and I'm grateful.  She is kind, she would literally give you the shirt off her back.  She loves her family to the depths of her soul.  She doesn't cook (except for Thanksgiving) and she makes no apologies.  She loves animals.  She is there for her friends.  And she has always been there for me.  She's carried me through many tough times in my life and been quick to forgive and guide me forward.  The prays for me and lets me know it.  She loves these boys (and all of her grandbabies:) and does anything she can to spend time with them and make them smile.  When I had my first son, she respected all of my quirky "new mommy" requests without a second glance and was there to help me--I'll never forget it.    She always makes me feel loved and smart and special, and I hope I can make my own children feel that way.  She is an amazing example and a faithful, awesome, loving, feisty lady.  I love her so much I can't put it into words.
Happy belated birthday Mama:) You are one of a kind.
