Happy Birthday Mom….
I was reading my Believe book tonight and this found these words for your birthday blessing!
Believe in today…Life is a great and wondrous mystery, and the only thing we know for sure is what is right here right now. Don’t miss it!
I love how you value life and all it holds. It hasn’t always been easy and you understand deep struggles, but you continue to live each day for what it brings you.
I enjoy how you invite others to enjoy life, either by being with them in simple ways, a lunch out, a meal in, assisting with refugee resettlement, composting side by side….
I appreciate how you are honest about the joys and struggles of life. Some days are just better than others. You are honest about that and it is what it is…
I am filled with gratitude for the adventures we have together, either biking in Lowell or running errands on any given day, enjoying pedicures or traveling to the Dominican for a mission trip. The world is big and there is much to experience…thank you for experiencing so much with me!
And so as you now live being 70, I have no doubt that you will continue to live that well. You are a wife, mother, mother in law, grandmother and friend. You are a retired successful business owner, a faithful church member, and advocate and an adviser. I am thankful for each moment we share, filled with much laughter and some tears, but all in all, delightful moments.
I love you Mom…..
It is my hope and prayer you will have a wonderful year filled with peace, hope and happiness!
