Happy Birthday Mom

Yesterday my mom celebrated her 59th birthday. We had lovely warm weather and LOTS of food. With a coconut birthday cake. Mom is the glue that holds our family together; she is the sensible one and the one who also brings everyone back to reality. Unlike my dad who is a dreamer! I take after him. I hope to be like my mother when I am 59. Full of compassion and strong. She has weathered many hard times but has always been the one to stay strong for her family. Always with good food on the table and a open ear. Happy Birthday Mommie :)

It is good to hear that you and your Mom have such great ties! So many times I hear Mothers and Daughters that let the little things get to them and don't speak. God Bless you Both for keeping the lines of communication open and real!!
I lost my Mother 10 years ago to blessed and tell her as often as you can that you Love her!

Whoa! I'm older than your mom! Tell your mom that life does get better the older we get! I really enjoyed reading your tribute to your mom. It is so nice when a mom can feel they did their job right! Pam
