Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Momma


“She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” (Prov. 31:27)


It didn’t take becoming a mother for me to start appreciating my own mother; that began a long time ago and grew over the years. But now that I have a child of my own, I look up to you, i call you often for advice and ask what would you do in this situation...

She is always there to take care of the needs of her husband and children before her own, if her kids wanted it, she would do without it for them


My Mother’s Leadership and Support: “She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue” (Prov. 31:25)
In addition to serving her family, my mom has also been a good source of wisdom. She has a practical perspective on life, and she is very focused on the things that she values: family and Christian faith. It is really difficult to capture all of the ways that she has passed her wisdom along to us. 
My Mother’s Legacy: “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.” (Prov. 31:28)
After many years of faithfulness, my mother has much to show for it. Her contentment in the sometimes tedious and mundane life of a mother has led her to an amazing legacy:
  • She has successfully raised 3 kids with different personalities, strengths, and weaknesses. Never went back to work until we were all in high school and able to take care of our selves
  • She now has adult kids who are happy, healthy, and grounded.
  • 2 daughters are married, and she has 3 beautiful grandchildren.


Thanks for all you do for me, I am so thankful that you raised me to be the best I can be, you taught me to reach for my goals, and never stop believing until I reached them 

Thank you for all that you have done for us, Mom! “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” (Prov. 31:29)

May this be the best birthday yet and nothing but good things this year. 

Love Your Oldest
