So, Halloween begins my mother’s birthday week and we started it off with a bang! Today, November 3, is the middle of her week which will end with a beach trip on Tuesday! So, officially, today, please join me in saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to this beautiful woman!!!
However, the beginning of the birthday week is not what I want to talk about today. Instead, I want to talk about how many beginnings have been possible because of my mother. In 61 years, she has touched so many lives. She has taught, mentored, helped, mothered, and supported others without a concern for herself. She has begun and completed three college degrees. She has raised two children, helped to raise three grandchildren, and is currently helping to raise four great-grandchildren. Her beginnings have always uplifted others and led to something remarkable.
And the greatest thing about this is that she isn’t anywhere near finished yet!
So, here’s to many more beginnings and continued health and happiness to the woman who truly was my beginning!
Mom, you are the center around which our family’s love evolves!
