Mama’s Birthday

Today is a special day for me.

It’s also a special day for my mama, and my kids and the people who are close to me.

Today I celebrate my mama.

Grandma MOE was in the hospital 36 years ago today giving birth to her first child.

I can’t be sure of the feelings she had then, but I can imagine them clearer now that I am a mama.

I celebrate her for having the love and strength and courage to bring me into this world.

I commend her for raising me with values and respect.

And I congratulate her for having the patience through all the tough times.

The love I have been given over the years is something that some people wish for their whole lives.

Thank you, Mama.


So tell me, how do you celebrate your birthday? Do you reflect on anything or anyone as part of your day?
