Today is my beautiful mom's birthday. She truly is the heartbeat of our family. She is the glue, the love and the tie that binds.
It is so easy for me to say wonderful things about her and difficult for her to hear...and accept.
I will get an earful for this post from her, trust me.
She is my cheerleader and my counselor...
my conscience and my defender.
She taught me how to love my children unconditionally by loving me that way even when I was less than lovable.
She is not perfect, She cannot keep a secret and her political beliefs are questionable.
But here on earth, she is my rock , my compass and my security. Other than my heavenly Father, she sees past my faults like no other. She thinks I am Martha Stewart and Mr. Green Jeans rolled into one.
I cannot even begin to imagine my life without her. My mind cannot even begin to go there.
I love you mom. These kind words about you are true and worth the scolding I will get from you later.
I made this canvas for her birthday. Each heart represents one of her five children and their children and their children... I will share more on it later.
