This past Saturday, I had the privilege to throw my mother a surprise birthday party! It was her first birthday party ever and so many friends came out on a cold, November evening to celebrate my sweet mother. I can’t tell you all the kind things said but it was all about how wonderful she is and how blessed everyone felt to know her.
It was wonderful for her to hear these words from friends and family. She doesn’t always understand how truly special and unique, she truly is, to not only me and my family but to others, she blesses with her love and kindness.
I’ve truly been blessed to have her in my life. She’s been not only a mother, but friend, counselor, confidant, sneaky co-conspirator, shopping partner, BFF, and on and on I could go.
One of the most wonderful ways our relationship has grown has been through my writing as she has helped me edit my books.
