Birthday Blessings...

Today is a special day. It is a day when I remember how blessed I really am. How God chose me to be such a lucky gal, I shall never comprehend. For you see, He gave me one of the most beautiful women I know, inside and out, to be my "Mommy."

When I think of love... I am reminded of her hugs.

When I think of patience... I am reminded of her gentle touch.

When I think of sacrifice... I am reminded of her journey.

When I think of being a mom... I am led by her example.

When I think of being a Godly woman... I simply think "Mom."

I thank God every day for her presence in my life.

Happy Birthday, Mom!!!

I Love you very much!

Mommy and me during the early days...

And now.


January is one of those "birthday" months for my family. Besides being my mother's birthday, the 21st was my mother-in-law's birthday and the 25th will be my brother-in-law's birthday. They are both very special people and I am blessed to call them family. Thought you might like to see an oldie but goodie of my hubby's family. Here Kevin with his parents and his older brother David.
Don't you just LOVE the old pictures?!!!
Happy Birthday, Grandma and David!
Happy weekend, friends!

A fine tribute; how I pray to be honored with such love at some point down the road. Alas, my boys are few with their sentiments. I might have to wait until baby girl grows up...

Have a blessed Sabbath rest!

Your Mom is always blessed by your contacts and phone calls. She's not much on sitting at this pc, but she enjoys your posts that I call her in to read. This one is especially WARMING!
