Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mother's birthday so I am dedicating this post today to a wonderful woman. We had a party for her this weekend and I took this picture of her cutting the first slice. It looked good, but I didn't get a chance to taste it. We had a great time honoring a strong and beautiful mother who continues to be a loving mother and grandmother. God bless you ma. You're my rock. You've been a great mother for my 38 years right or wrong and I just want to thank you. Thank you for correcting me, popping me upside my head, loving me and praying for me. May you guide me through my next 30 plus years. We love you. MmmmmmmmmBbbbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

P.S. Oh, and thank you for not killing me that time I damn near burned down the kitchen playing with matches. Thanks ma! :)

SEJ-
Thanks! I appreciate that.

MJW-
Thank you kind sir. :)

p's wife-
Yes, my mom had a great time. She was showered with gifts. Yeah, little boys with matches??? I was just fascinated. I especially loved the magnifying glass. I would sit in the window and burn paper. I got my butt whip so much it wasn't funny. :) I eventually lost my fascination for fire and moved on to GI Joe. Thanks!~

Hei Mama, happy Birthday, see many more fruitful years. I wish you good health and a lot of laughter in the next 46years :) Thank you for loving me so much. Thank you for your listening ear, and gentle advise. I wish every woman could have a Mother-in-law like you. You are Mama in all respects, your actions, your words, even your silence is filled with warmth and kindness. Okay, I need to stop Mama. I love you, I love you, I love you

MmmmBbbbbaaaaa

P.S. Thank for not killing him, I mean, you know I would not have a husband if you did :)

Thank you for stopping by. She is a proud mother. By the way, I checked out your spot and it's a very creative concept.

I agree with BBB, your Mom does NOT look old enough to have a grown son! She is beautiful, and she did a DAMN good job raising her son! I bet she is a wonderful lady. May God bring her nothing but happiness in all the years to come!

Stephen Bess said...

clarification:
"Being Mamma Daily" is not my mamma. :) My mother is retired and watching cable or reading.

Miss A-
Yeah, little boys are craaaaaaazy! Straight firebirds. :)

SEJ-
Yeah, mom looks great. Thanks. Proud to be 60. She was cool with me putting her pic on this blog so she must think so too. lol :)
