Birthday Wishes for Mom

Well , today is my mom's birthday and I just couldn't let it go by without saying what is in my heart. How did I manage to be so wonderfully blessed to be born to my mom some 50 odd years ago? Some of you know her as Gaye, Norma Gaye, Aunt Gaye, Mrs Bippert, Mrs Belcher, Nana and Mom...some of you don't know her at all. But let me tell you what an amazing presence she is in my life. She was there for my dad in his illness and then took on the jobs of both mother and father to my brother and I. She went back to school, got a job and gave us a great life. She cooked breakfast every morning and dinner every night. She sewed dance costumes, school clothes and prom dresses. She had a great job that took her away from home some but she always did the right thing and was always there for us. We went on vacations that I will never forget for as long as I live. She has loved my friends and treated them like they were her own. She's a wonderful cook, throws a great birthday party and is so much fun to be around. She loves deeply and will do all she can for others without asking for anything in return. She does not judge and accepts our weaknesses and for that I'm extremely grateful. She loves her grand children and goes out of her way to do for them daily. I am so thankful that she is my mom and my best friend and that even though I'm not worthy, the good Lord decided that her home was where I should be. I can't even begin to thank or re-pay her for all she has done for me in my life...but just to say. Mom, I love you and am so happy you are my mom. I hope you have a wonderful birthday, even if we are dragging you out of town for a football game instead of throwing you one of your wonderful birthday parties. Happy Birthday Mom!
