Happy Birthday Mom

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. ~Honoré de Balzac

We had our share of hardships
in our earlier years.
Now that I am older,
time made so much clear.

I know that you have always
done the best you could.
I am proud to be your daughter,
I am proud to call you Mom.

I want you to know how much I respect what you have

done for my Dad, for your children, for me,
and even for yourself.

When problems knock you down
you just slowly, steadily, adjust your shoulders
and then move on.

Your strength amazes me.

I am proud of you.
You are beautiful.
I miss you.

You are strong.
You are loving.
You are caring.
Your are dependable.

We are blessed to have you in our lives.
I sing your doll song to my daughter…
She holds the pillow you made her at night…
I love you….

Have a Wonderful Birthday!

Hugs and Love from all of us here!
