Today is my mama's birthday!
I ain't saying which one. You wouldn't believe me anyway.
The older I get and the more pictures I post on Facebook, the more I get told, "you look just like your mama!" That always makes me happy. I think it is so cool how you can look at somebody and see where they came from. I do it all the time. I've always seen my daddy in my face and now I'm seeing Mama. It's a blessing to look like my mama but what I really want is to look like her on the inside.
My mama is the strongest, most generous, selfless, giving, loving, protective, friendly person I've ever known. I've never known one time where she put herself over us or Daddy or anybody else for that matter. She's raised beaucoups of children, loved on everybody she knows like they're family and led a life that makes Jesus proud of her. She's what people mean when they say "beautiful inside and out".
She's exactly what I want to be when I grow up. :) I want folks to say, "you act just like your mama!", too.
Happy, happy birthday, my sweet mama. I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!!
