Happy Birthday Mom!!

Here is an opportunity for all of us to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in our lives. If you would like to take part great. If not that is OK too. If you would like to share your blessing, just leave it in the comments. If you want to use the picture above and list a blessing on your own site, then leave a URL to your site in the comments. There is no pressure here. I just know that I am incredibly blessed and I would like to share that and give thanks to Him who all blessing come from. This is a way that we can encourage one another. I know that I am often encouraged when someone shares a blessing with me. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

Today, I am thankful for the Mom I had.  She would have been 80 years old today.  She loved her family and loved to have fun.  I miss her fiercely still.

This is my family growing up. 

This is my Mom holding me. 

This is my Mom and her older sister.  This was just less than a year before she died.  
 This always cracked me up.  She LOVED her gameboy.  She played Dr. Mario.  :)
The gameboy was hers, but Dad played his fair share too.  :)
 Happy Birthday, Mom!!!!  I love you and miss you so much!

Your mom was a lovely lady and had a lovely family! One day we will see our moms again. That thought keeps me going.
Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!
