Happy Birthday, Mom

My mom would have been 59 years young today (she died of Lupus when I was a little girl). She's not here to celebrate on Earth but I have no doubt she's having a party up in heaven today. A shin dig so big it would make any birthday bash down here look like a mere afterthought. There are days when I miss her so much, and would give anything to spend even just a few minutes with her, but I know God's plan for our family was and still is perfect. His ways are always best, no matter what.

I love you, Mom. Happy 59th!


  1. Happy birthday to your sweet mom, who must have been wonderful to have made a daughter like you!

  2. Ditto to what Amanda said since she said it well :)

  3. What a sweet tribute. Hope you celebrate her in big ways today!

  4. Happy birthday to your Momma! I loved this tribute. Prayers and thoughts for you today as you remember her sweet life.

  5. Would loved to have known her. What a blessing your life is from her, and what an exciting thing to see her again in Heaven one day!

  6. Happy birthday to your mom. So glad you will see her again one day!

  7. I just hit publish on a post about my mom's bday too! Wow, I didn't know she died when you were young, that is tragic, but I guess it's all you know huh? Have you written about it before?

    That last picture is adorable!

    1. Yes it is pretty much been a reality since I was 6 years old. My dad remarried a wonderful lady a short time later and I have called her mom since day one. :) Very thankful how God turns our sorrows into happiness, in His own way, in His own time.
