I would like to say "Happy Birthday" to a very special lady. Happy 60th Mom!! I know that there are alot of special moms out there but I think I have one of the best. She was only 17 when I was born and by the time she was 20 she had 4 children. I can't even imagine that.....By the time she was 30 she was a single mom that worked 2 or sometimes 3 jobs at a time to take care of us. We were never hungry, had a great home to live in and surrounded by love. She was always there for any school or sporting event we were involved in. She was there to take care of us when we were sick or to help us when we needed it. I know how tough it was to have 4 teenagers at home yet she managed to deal with all of our trials and tribulations. Though she did go gray early, I wonder why....lol....
When I found myself alone as a young mom with a little baby she opened her home and took us in for 7 years. She became a second mom to my daughter and was an amazing support to me. I don't know what we would have done without her.
She is the first person i call with good news and the first i call with bad news. She always listens and is there to help in any way she can. I don't know if I ever thank her enough but I hope she knows how truly special she is to me and how lucky I am to have her in my life. Through her example I have learned what it truly means to be a mom and hope that I am doing as good as job with my children as she did with me and my siblings.
She is also a terrific grandmother to her 7 grandchildren and shares a special bond with each and every one of them.
So mom here's to you and may we be lucky enough to have you in our lives for 60 more years!!! Happy Birthday, we love you.....Cheryl, Jim, Stacey and David
