Happy Birthday, Mama!

Today is my sweet mother's birthday.  She wouldn't be too happy with me if I told you exactly which birthday she's celebrating.  It doesn't matter, though, because she is still young and beautiful in my mind.  I know our whole family would agree.  

She is the glue that holds our family together.  We look to her for advice, love,  and comfort.  She counsels her adult children while she still plays good guys vs. bad guys with her five year old.  She is a Proverbs 31 woman and I aspire to be like her.

We love you, mama! Hope today is extra special.
