Happy Birthday, Mother

When I was a kid I loved having my mother come to school for various volunteer activities.  She had a fun personality, and I thought she was so beautiful.  I was very proud of my mother.

I am still very proud of my mother.  She is one of those people who becomes the life of the party wherever she is.  She has the ability to draw others toward her with her contagious smile and genuine caring spirit.

My mother taught me to cook, to sew, to play the piano, to garden, to clean.  She taught me how to love, how to serve, and how to be faithful.  She has always set an example of kindness, respect, and consideration for others' feelings.

I wish I was athletic like my mother.  I wish I was more at ease with people I don't know, like my mother.  I wish I had been a rodeo queen like my mother....

Have a great day, Mom!  I wish I was there to bake you a cake.
