A toast to you mom!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday, dear mom, Happy Birthday to you!
|My mother and me.|
Never further than a phone call away
Who taught me that family is the most important thing in the world; family is always there for you, no matter what, that even when I am fighting with my sisters and brother they love me and I love them.
Who instilled in me the love of reading, and taught me that when the book is that good, it is perfectly acceptable to stay up all night and read.
Who taught me that black is a color, and that a little black dress is the most important item in your wardrobe.
Who instilled in me a love of adventure and is always ready to go at a moments notice
Who has shared many with me, from Paris,
too walking three weeks in Scotland, and wore out a good pair of wellies, a great Barbour jacket.
Who allowed me the time to see the world even when I should have been working.
Who has always
Who went back to school after four children, a divorce, worked full time, earned a degree and started a successful company!
Who taught me that when it seems like all is lost

Tomorrow is a better day.
Who loves the holidays perhaps more than me
And thinks the perfect day is…
Who is always ready to share a cup of chocolate
A nocturnal adventure
And who taught me to celebrate the little things.
Who instilled in me that at the end of the day it is all up to him.
Mom, I love you and thank you for always being there for me and my siblings, for giving up so much so that we could become the people we are today and for always making us your priority. Thank you is not enough but I hope you know how much I love you! I cannot wait to see you! Enjoy your special day!

Irina at Palomasea said it all. You and your mum are beautiful and the similarity is all there 🙂
Hoping she has a wonderful birthday and that you enjoy many more times together for a long time. You are a luck girl. Your mother is a wonderfully strong woman by the sound of it.

Good morning sweet soul. Thank you for coming to visit and ENJOY YOUR CUP OF CHOCOLATE! It is still too hot here to fully enjoy the benefits; it was 90 degrees yesterday and I think today it is cooling down to 80!!!!! Strange for Minnesota!
