Happy Birthday Mom



Happy Birthday Mom!


It's my mom's birthday week. So I want to wish her a very happy birthday.
She is honestly the best person I know. I wish everyone could know her.

Your lives would be better for knowing her. Trust me on this.


She has one of the biggest and kindest hearts that ever graced this earth. Yet it resides in such a small human frame, one that is slowly growing weaker and smaller. But it seems as her frame shrinks and struggles, her spirit and her heart enlarge.




She is humble and lovely.

She is strong and caring.

Her love is immeasurable.

She is beautiful inside and out.

She is amazing.






And I'm blessed that she is my mom.
I wish her all the joy she can hold in that enormous heart of hers.
Love you mom.

I love your mom!!! I will never forget her commitment to Lincoln's primary class when he was baptized. Never before had he felt the love a primary teacher. Words can not express our love as a family for your mom, and your whole family!

As others have noted, the resemblance between you and your mom is amazing. And I love that one of her as a little girl with the "stinker" squint, top right part of your post.

What a family resemblance. The squinty faced one reminds me of Jillian when she was littler. Your mom, rocks, Shanna. And you are carrying on the legacy.
