Yesterday was my mom's birthday. I meant to post this then, but forgot. Not about her birthday, just about posting this. =)
Always a day late and ten dollars short.
Anyway, I just have to wish a Happy Birthday to the most amazing mama a girl could ever ask for. She is the most beautiful, patient, helpful, thoughtful, caring, loving person I've ever known and I would be in a good place if I could even be half the mom to Cruz that she has been to us. Five kiddos and she survived...let alone that four of them were daughters. That's a very good woman, right there.
I shared this a few months back, but I have to share it again. 25 years ago my mom wrote a letter to each of us meant to be opened at our town's 125th celebration which was last May. It was one of the most special gifts I've ever received and I love reading her thoughts and feelings on her kiddos way back then. Check out this letter from my mom.
And some of my favorite, most recent pics. I love you mama!
