Happy birthday mom!

Happiest of happy birthdays to my dear mom. 
What else can I say, but may god truly bless you today and always, and our mother Mary watch over you!
You are my inspiration, my shoulder to cry on, my listening ear, my wisdom giver, my faith builder. My mom. 
You always think of others first and would do anything for anyone, esp one of your kids (ie drop everything and move in with your daughter and her crazy crew for 6 weeks so you can insure her twin girls come home healthy!). You don't know how to love except with your whole heart. You're one of the most helpful people in the world. You're crazy--willing to try anything new! So adventurous. Living life to its fullest. You're classy, gorgeous, active, intelligent, AND MY mom! Wow. God has blessed me. I've got a lot to live up to. :)
Wish we could be there to prop your feet up, bake you a coconut cake, bring you a glass of wine and shower you with hugs and kisses. Alas, for now, a cute picture of my kids will have to do..and my  love from miles away. Thanks mom for all you are! And grandma and grandad for raising her right! :) xoxo
