Happy Birthday, Mom!

Wednesday, Jul 13, is my mother's birthday - she turns 86 years old - which is truly amazing.  I can't imagine the things she and my father have seen, the vast differences in technology, the changes in this world.  She raised five children.  She is a grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, sister.  She was one of ten children.  She has battled major illnesses, including cancer.  She was second in her high school class.  She has worked both inside and outside of our home.  She is still a homemaker today.  She has been married to the same man - my dad - for 65 years and she still looks after him.  She played the piano at church for many years.  She has entertained many people in our home.   She took "new" math classes as an adult just so she could help her kids with their homework.  She was a seamstress and a wonderful cook.  She was a librarian.  She taught us the love of games.  She made sure all of us could swim.  She IS a great, strong, woman full of spunk.  She is exactly as God planned.
Thanks, Mom, for making me a part of our family.
