Happy Belated Birthday, Momma!

As far as moms go, I've got the best!

Joan Elizabeth Taylor, January 10, 1947.

I won't brag on her, because that would embarrass her but my siblings and I are so blessed to have her as our mom. Not only is she willing to drop everything to come help at a moment's notice, but she loves to hang out with the kids, fold our laundry, wash our dishes, have the patience with the kids that I just don't have. If I've needed help with money, she NEVER hesitates to find a way to help me...(maybe that's a not so good thing...(:(:big smile:):)).

Mom, you've been a picture of courage, faith, patience, unconditional love and joyfulness my whole life and for that, I am eternally grateful. If I could have half as many of your amazing qualities, I might not scar my kids and send them into therapy...and I could be the Mom that God wants me to be.

I love you so much. I am so thankful that you are my momma! Happy Belated Birthday! (we still need to have a party...)
