Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is a special day for our family, my mother turns 80. Words cannot express all of the many things I am grateful for to my mother. She made a wonderful home for all of us, always welcomed friends and family, was involved with us in activities, and just basically placed her family before herself, always. My mother is a godly woman who has always lived by example. I thank God for her daily and am grateful for all of the time we have been gifted with her on this earth. Not only was she a wonderful wife and mother, she is an incredible "nanny" to my children and now my grandchildren. I love you, Mom!
I don't know how old she was here, maybe five or six.

Yes, that is me with the "Charlie Brown" head and my beautiful mother.My wedding day was so special, mother mother made my dress.

I still think my mother is the most beautiful woman - Love you both!
