Today I give thanks for my mom. She’s been here for me from spending the day of my birth alone in the hospital room while my dad worked at home fixing the furnace and milking the cows all the way through broken hearts and healed hearts, lost jobs and found jobs, being a jerk to being a joy, misplaced hope and faith renewed.
It’s even better to give thanks for her and gratitude to her on this day of her birth. Mom, here’s wishing you joy in every day and a continued healthy heart and mind. You are much loved. Wishing you a joyous birthday!
Side note: I treated her to dinner, but surprised her with a few extra dinner guests. Sadly, I forgot to take photos. Me of all people!
