Tomorrow is my mama's 70th birthday. I may be biased, but I have to agree with the many people who say they can't believe she is 70 years old. She's beautiful! She really doesn't look her age. I only hope that I can age that gracefully.
I have a very special relationship with my mom. We talk every day - maybe 4 or 5 times. With cell phones, it's a whole lot easier. Of course, she only lives 2 hours away, so if I get super desperate, I can just pack up the kids and head her way. While she remains my mom - chockful of great advice and wisdom - she's also my best friend. Our conversations cover just about everything. I adore her!
She's been a role model for me, as well. She handles situations with grace and poise. She enjoys everyone she meets. She always keeps a level head. And she gushes love. She would do just about anything for anyone if she could. She loves the way Jesus tells us to love. I'm thankful I have an example, even though I may not always live up to it.
So, Mom, on the eve of your birthday, I wish to tell the world how very grateful I am for you. I know you've had some rough times in your life, but those experiences have made you who you are. I'm so glad that God saw it fit to put us together in this life because I surely don't think I could have made it without you. Thank you for who you are, all that you do, and most of all - for your unfailing love. You are the very best Mom in the whole world - and you teach me every day how to be there for my kids. I so appreciate you, and I love you with all my heart. Happy birthday, Mom.
