Today is such a special day.
My mother is celebrating her birthday
It’s rude to say the number
but it starts with an “S”
and rhymes with “eventy”
stating the obvious would be
what I should do
like how amazing she is
to anyone she knows.
How her whole life has been dedicated to her girls
and her grandchildren.
Her Mother is her rock
and how strong she truly has been
since her husband of 50 years
became one of God’s angels.
(she doesn’t think so, but we know better)
How important she values her family
and how blessed she says she is to have such
incredible friends in her life.
What she doesn’t seem to get
is what we all feel about her.
She’s always there for whoever needs her.
If you don’t believe me,
call her and see what happens.
God help anyone who causes any harm
to those she holds dear.
She loves to laugh
and can horse around with the best of them
even though she says Dad
was the best in that department.
had to 🙂
If she calls you “friend”
you can bet your ass she means it.
She’s never been afraid of hard work.
To this day
she still mows her own lawn
and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Those who have ever entered her home
know what “comfortable” really means
as there is a very good chance
you’ll be asked to sit
and more than likely
you will be fed.
She doesn’t pull punches,
so if you ask what she thinks,
she’ll tell you.
Good, bad or indifferent.
She’s always put everyone first
so today I want that to be different.
I want her to be recognized
not only as a wonderful
Mother, wife, daughter, sister/sister-in-law and friend
but also as a blessing to anyone lucky enough to have known her.
I Thank God every day she is my Mother
and more than that
a very special someone
to so many others.
The road she travels today
has been a bumpy one to say the least,
but if anyone deserves to be recognized
for the goodness in her heart,
Have a beautiful day,
you’ve earned it!
Happy Birthday Mom
WE LOVE YOU
more than you can even imagine!
