Happy Earthly Birthday Mom!

Hello Friends!

Today is a very special day in our family. It is a day we will always remember as it was Mom's earthy birthday. She is missed more with each passing day. Isn't it wonderful that God has promised us that we will be reunited with our loved ones!

Happy Earthly Birthday Mom!
Most days for 11 years now I have visioned the day we will be reunited. Today I can't help think of all your earthly birthdays that were filled with lunches, dinners, cards, gifts, deserts and laughter. OH how I miss those days gone by! As I think of those special times I can't help but think how blessed I am to be able to say I had the best Mom in the world! You have made me what I am today. You taught me all about being a good mother, to keep my family together no matter what, how important it is to be the bigger person in all situations, the power of forgiveness and two of the most important things a Mother can do for her child...to love their father and to know Jesus! For these things and more I will be forever grateful! As I reflect on the character that you were I still see most vividly a woman who was selfless, a women who gave when she did not have, a women who went without so her children could have more, a women who ALWAYS had a smile on her face even in the most challenging of times, a women who forgave EVERYONE, and a women who thought her grandchildren were more than prized possessions. I hope when my tasks are done here on earth that my children love, admire and miss me as we do you!

I miss you Mom and and oh how glorious the day will be when we are reunited...Forever!

Love and Hugs....

What a touching post. I so agree. I feel the same way about my mom who I lost 3 1/2 years ago.

Now we have to celebrate life and remember the good times.

I needed a good cry today.

Love,
Carrie
