And now I have the privilege of seeing through her eyes the amount of love, care, concern and involvement that a Mother feels for her children. I have the honor of feeling the regret of the rude things I may have said through a few selfish years, and the pleasure of being at a place where her wisdom is now more readily accepted and welcomed...(it is so much easier this way, I hope my daughters figure it out sooner than I did :)
ANYWAYS.... Mom, you are so special to me. I am thankful for your empathy, your kindness, your glass-always-half-full attitude, your positive example in your friendships and your faithfulness in your commitments over the years, to AWANA, to the D school, to 3rd grade Sunday school, to my family... You are reliable and trustworthy and caring. I love you so much and I am so thankful for you and the very important role you have played and continue to play in my life.
Happy Birthday, I love you!
And now, some photos!!!!
9 years ago today, you held your 3 day old first grandchild!!

So many great memories growing up going to the 4th of July picnic at Lamonica (and then Buchanan)
The kids feel so supported and loved by you!
