Mother's Birthday

Today is the "9-11" anniversary, grandparents day, and my mother's 87th birthday! Since most of you have never met her, allow me to tell you about "Mama." She's free-spirited, amusing, sharp witted with a quick mind, and highly intuitive. She was a partner with my father for 62.5 years of marriage. She was a devoted mother of six children whom she raised and disciplined. During those years she managed a household: cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, decorating, . . . She always had a good eye and taste for fashion.

She's friendly, outgoing, and socialable, very fond of people in general. She knows how to make people feel welcomed and comfortable. She loves and nurtures children. She has a heart for the downtrodden, you could say she's a defender of the underdog. She strongly believes in fairness and resents false displays of caring and emotion. She hates arrogance and believes humans should never be demoralized. She has always desired our family to be warm, loving, and stable.

She loves the Lord and lives an honest, moral life. She has and continues to live a life of integrity. I truly love you mother, Happy 87th Birthday!
