My Moma's Birthday
Now, you might notice that Mama is spelled Moma in my title. That's because that is how my Mama always spelled it, and still does. Except I noticed that she left a comment on my blog one time recently and spelled it M-A-M-A. She can't do that! LOL I almost didn't know it was from her! LOL
Anyway, today is her birthday. Although I know that she wouldn't care if I said how old she was, I won't. She might not want everyone to know. (53 :))
Yes, my mama is still young! I made this page of her and B.4.B. because although I have already scrapped that picture, it was just too beautiful not to put on a page by itself. I wanted a simple layout to highlight such a beautiful moment. My mom loves blue and looks great in it, too. It's her favorite color. She was and is a wonderful mother who took my sister and I to church every Sunday. I learned what it meant to be steadfast from my mom. When I was itty bitty, she took me to church on the back of her bicycle. Somehow she managed to juggle a full time job with being a mother who always had time to listen and talk to me. We used to sit on the couch on Saturday (after we cleaned!) and I would put makeup on her or play with her hair and do funny things to it. She would fall asleep and I would take pictures of the mess I had made. I used to sit in the bathroom with her while she took a bath and I would tell her how I was going to buy her a diamond ring when I grew up. She thought it was sweet. I love my moma! God knew exactly what He was doing when He gave me to her (or her to me!). She's always supported me in my calling as a wife and a mother and loves her grandchildren - and is always willing to welcome more.
Mom, I love you! Happy Birthday!!!!!!
