Happy Birthday Mom

My mother celebrated her 77th birthday this week. Happy Birthday Mom! You are so special to me both as a mother and a friend. I Love You! I wish you joy, happiness and good health this year and always.

My mother and I at her Birthday dinner

AS I LOOK BACK...

As I look back on my life

I find myself wondering...

Did I remember to thank you

for all that you have done for me?


For all of the times you were by my side

to help me celebrate my successes

and accept my defeats?


Or for teaching me the value of hard work,

good judgement, courage, and honesty?


I wonder if I've ever thanked you

for the simple things...

The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared?


If I have forgotten to express my gratitude

For any of these things,

I am thanking you now...

and I am hoping that you've known all along,

how very much you are loved and appreciated.

Lovely picture of you and your mom. You have been blessed to still have her with you. Spoil her, treat her with all the kindness and love you can. I lost my mom a few years back and miss her every day.
Found you through Aquariann's blog hop and now following you. Love your jewelry!

Ansota,
Thanks for following. Thanks for your comments too. I love my Mom and I know how important she is in my life. I know all too well how much people miss their mother's after they are gone. I've heard it time and time again from friends and I certainly don't doubt it. She is very special to me.
Thanks
Denise
