HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Today is one of my favorite people's birthdays - my mom!

Now my mom is pretty amazing. I know that most people probably feel that way about their moms - but I am pretty sure that mine is one of the best out there. What I think is most special to me about my mom is that she's not just a mother to me - she's my best friend. She is always there with a listening ear as I am stressed or worried about something. She'll have a word of advice or just words of comfort. She also is the first one to say she's praying for me and I know that she always is. My mom and I are also so much a like that I know that she really knows how I feel. It's funny at times because I look at her and can see what I'll be like in a few years - if I'm lucky enough.

So HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
We love you and hope your day is fantastic!

I was actually getting on to post a 'Happy Birthday' post on our blog - but it looks like you beat me to it. So, I'll just comment on yours.

We are very blessed to have such a great, loving and caring friend in our mom. I feel honored that we get to share our anniversary with her birthday!

WE LOVE YOU MOM! Thank you for being you!

- Love, us
