Happy Birthday, Mama

Today, we celebrated my moms birthday.  This day is so special to me because it means another year that I got to spend with my mom.  One of my very best friends doesn’t have her mama here with her anymore, so I definitely don’t take her for granted.  I am thankful for my mom, EVERY.DAY.    She is my best girlfriend.  She knows me so well.  I can tell her absolutely anything.  She loves me and my kids unconditionally.  I know that if I need her, she will be there.  She has sacrificed so much of her, for me. 


Knowing how much she loves me, and knowing a “mother’s love” myself, it’s hard to even fathom Gods love for me, us.  My mom gives me just a hint of what Gods love is like.  I am so thankful to God for allowing me to be her daughter.  My girls are SO lucky to have a Meme love them so much and want to be around them, NON STOP. 


I still NEED my mom, on so many levels.  When I am sick, I still cry and want my mom.  When I need girl advice, mommy advice, I call my mom.  When I need a shopping buddy, someone to keep the girls for a bit, get a recipe from, I call my mom.  When I need someone for a tag along to a baby shower, someone to cry with, laugh with and just BE with, I call my mom.  She is my best girlfriend.


I love our relationship and her SO much.  I admire her strength.  She has gone through A LOT in her life.  From loss (because of death), to loss (because of family dynamics), she has remained strong and always on my side.  She doesn’t let me down.


There are so many people who have lost their mom, don’t have a good relationship with their mom, don’t even know their mom, for that, I am SO grateful that God has allow me to have mine, and have a great relationship with.  Mom, I do not take you for granted.  I appreciate YOU.  I love you, so, so much.



So today, we celebrated her!  We went to eat dinner, then came back to the house, ate dessert and played games.  Followed by watching the ball drop.  It was a great time, spent with great people!


We love you mom!!  Here’s to MANY more!
