Happy Birthday!

There once was young beautiful Momma.

Not me. *cough*

MY Momma!

She married her handsome Prince and had a baby girl.


Then she had a baby boy.

My brother.

Now that I am a Momma myself, I now realize the hard work she put in. The long hours. The endless days and nights. All with a smile on her face....most of the time.

I now realize the love she had for us. The sacrifices she made in her own life.

I now understand why she would get angry when her house would get messy 5 minutes after she spent hours cleaning it. I also understand why she wasnt the happiest person to be around on Sundays while she was cleaning.

Cleaning sucks.

Now that I am a Momma, I appreciate her. I appreciate everything she did for us growing up. I appreciate everything she still does for us.

She is a good Momma.

She deserves the vacation she is on right now.

Even though I am not there too.

Happy Birthday to my young beautiful Momma.

I leave you with pictures.
