Today is my mother’s 65th birthday. Hmm, not sure if she wanted me to oust her age but since 60 is the new 50 and she doesn’t look – or act – a day over 50 I think its all good.
I could write a really long post about all of the wonderful qualities my mother possesses – she’s smart, loving, funny, creative, crafty, thoughtful, interesting, loyal, strong and has a keen knack for eyeing a fabulous pair of shoes – or I could go on and on about some of the special memories I have – climbing into her bed as a toddler, becoming her #1 shopping helper when my big sister started school, reading the fun notes she used to write on my napkins in my lunchbox, going to Paris for the weekend in high school, the entire year we planned my wedding – my lists could go on and on.
When you have a mother as special as I do you couldn’t possibly list all of the things that you love about her or all of the things she’s done that have impacted your life – something would inevitably get left out. But, what you can do is say, thanks, Mom, for being you, for loving me for me, and for all of the wonderful things you do.
My sister, my mother, me, my grandmother and my daughter - we run four generations deep!
Happy Birthday, Mom! Love you.
Winks & Smiles,
