Happy Birthday Mom

Y'all, my sweet Momma turned 80 years old yesterday and I think you will agree... 
 that she does not look 80!

She also does not act 80 and just loves her grandchildren

Her greatest desire is to see one of her grands walk down the aisle and because this guy...

is her oldest grandchild and because at 15 years of age, he is not ready to take that walk...

I know in my heart that she will be here 10 years from now, when he may be ready!

My sweet momma is not just beautiful on the outside but oh so beautiful on the inside as well.
She taught me so much about how to love and to nurture and to have compassion.

She taught me how to be a mom and I wonder if she sometimes thinks that she may have taught me too well.  
You see how I am blaming it all on you, Mom!


More on that later!

Anyway, when I see my children loving on my Mom, it just melts me.  Their great love for her is never forced and always given with such joy and that is simply because she is awesome and loving and fun and caring and interested in who they are and what they are interested in and that is such a gift for them and for me!

Happy 80th 21st birthday Mom.
You are one of the main reasons I am who I am and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the Mom that you were and still are. 
I love you so much and don't tell you nearly enough how important you are to me, so...


and I hope that your 90th birthday will be just as fun as your 80th, just with even more "grand" love to go around!
