Oh, my. You should have warned us that we might need a tissue before reading. Aren't wonderful, godly mothers such a joy? Happy Birthday to yours!

Awwww... so, so sweet! Happy Birthday, Mama! (I don't think I could spell your last name if I tried!) :)


What a beautiful post! Very happy birthday wishes to your mom.


That is a beautiful letter to your mom for her birthday. My mom passed away 4 years ago today so it was nice to read something uplifting during a down day! :)


So beautiful to see you cherishing your mother. My mom passed away in June and next week will be her birthday- the first birthday without her. Your letter brought back sweet memories.
