Happiest of birthdays mama bear. Today marks the day that you were born, definitely one of the most special days in the whole entire world. I don’t have to tell you over here how much you mean to me – I trust that you already know. All I want to say is that I hope that today is as special as you are. I hope that your time away with dad is lots and lots of fun. And I pray today that God holds you safely in the palm of His hand to see many many more. Thank you for the blessing that you are to me. I want to remind you of the lyrics of this song today, one of your mother’s favourites…
M – is for the million things she gave me,
O – means only that she’s growing old,
T – is for the tears she shed to save me,
H – is for her heart as purest gold,
E – is for her eyes with love-light shining,
R – means right and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together they spell MOTHER, a word that means the world me.
And then this morning, I discovered another part of the song…
M – is for the mercy she possesses,
O – means that I owe her all I owe,
T – is for her tender, sweet caresses,
H – is for her hands that made a home,
E – means ev’rything she’s done to help me,
R – means real and regular!
Yup mum, all of the above describe exactly who you are. I love you to the infinity and beyond. Wish I was with you today to celebrate but even though I’m not, know that you’re in my mind and heart all day today. I love you so much – happy birthday xxx
