Happy Birthday, Mumsie!

I love these roses.  One can almost catch the scent of them in the air.  This artist has captured the beauty of roses--one of my favorite flowers.

Though this postcard wishes the receiver good luck, the truth is, I don't believe in luck--I believe in God.  He has seen me through good and bad times. 

He is the One who gave my Mother to me.  I didn't always appreciate her kindness and sweet loving heart.  I didn't understand the frustrations she had or the hard life she faced.  When I was a teenager, she knew me better than I knew myself.  But I didn't know that.

Now Mums is one of my very best friends.  I wish I could have known that a lot sooner!  Sunday is Mumsie's birthday.  She is beloved to my heart.  I am SO blessed to have this wonderful woman as my own dear Mom.

These are sweet words about your mum. I feel the same way you do, about luck, and about God.

I can only echo what is written above. What a beautiful post. I lost my mam (North East England dialect - Mam or mother... if you go farther south it changes to Mum)just over 10 years ago, I was 34 at the time and I thank God every day for letting my mam meet and love my children. They have their own wonderful memories and photographs of her and I can always fill in the blanks for them. Thank you for this opportunity to gaze at the memories in my mind and I send belated birthday greetings to your Mam.
