My mom turned 80 years old today! Wow... I am so lucky she is still here and lives so close to me. We had a great family Birthday Party for her tonite at a Pizza Joint down the road (thanks Rod & Cindy for putting it all together!). I love to see how my Mom brightens when she is surrounded by family. She glows! She looked lover-ly in pink with her funky Happy Birthday hat on. She is 80 and still fun, sassy and full of the dickens! I hope I can be just like her.
Lenzi put together a book of 80 memories that everyone wrote a little bit in. I cried as I read it. I forgot so many of those wonderful things that my mom did, or said or taught us. I am so grateful to have grown up under the wise eyes of a loving giving mother. Who chose a wonderful man to be her husband and my father. I am grateful now that we kids were #1 in her life even though I haven't always appreciated it. I love her energy. I love her curiosity. I love her generosity. I pray I can be just a fraction of a wife and mother she has been.
I love you mom!
