happy birthday to my beautiful mom + friend.


today is my beautiful mom's birthday. we celebrated her 30th birthday...again. *wink* actually she really doesn't care that people know her age (she turned 55 years old) - and who would care when you look as good as her at her age! and that is real black hair - never dyed. impressive, right?! (i doubt i'll be like that way at her age with how many times i've dyed my mop.) the fact that i could even be home to celebrate is such a blessing (for newer readers, i had lived in Chicago for 8 years a couple ago so i wasn't able to always make it home for the summer - so i do not take this time for granted).

but not only do my sisters and i admire her for her age-defying looks and hair, we love her for so many other things - her daily, sacrificial love for her family and for other people, her respect and support for her husband, Daddy, her heart for Jesus and His Word, and her sense of humor. we are the beyond blessed to have your as our mom and our best friend. thank you for always being there for us, demonstrating us to love every bit of life and people, and not to take it all too seriously. happy birthday, Mom! we love you so much!

much love.
{happy birthday, mom.}
