Happy Birthday Mom

Today is my Mother's birthday. 

Lately when I think of my Mom I, of course, associate her with all of her wonderful children and grandchildren.

She spends endless amounts of time worrying about us, taking care of us, visiting us, shopping for us, and loving us.  And the way she has taken Rich and his kids under her loving wing just makes me love and appreciate her all the more.
She loves Andrew even when he is too cool for pictures.

She loves her Bella the first granddaughter.
 Those twins, my oh my how she loves Grandpa John's granddaughters.

She loves her sweet and cuddly Ty.
And her busy busy JoJo
And her sweetie pie Sami.

And boy oh boy does she love her red headed Abby.
We have consumed her life, and I would venture to say that she really doesn't mind.

But my Mom is so much more than that.  She is an amazing and dedicated music teacher.  She has given the gift of music education to so many students over her long teaching career.  She always works so hard at everything she does.  Whether it be going back to school while raising three kids, canning and preserving her vegetables and fruits from her garden, sewing, scrapbooking, or making her home so special and welcoming.

I love my Mom for all that she is and for all that she does.... she is one cool chick!!

I love you Mom.  Happy Birthday!!
