Happy Birthday to my amazing Mom . . .

30 Apr

Today is my Mom’s birthday. She is truly a remarkable woman.

Happy Birthday Mom! I love you so much!

To say that I would not be here if it were not for her is true in many more ways than the fact that she brought me into this world. The past two years have been a rough go for our family. Cancer happened to all of us, not just me. It hit my parents particularly hard.

My Mom is the most caring and selfless person I know. She has been here for me every day in so many ways. I have leaned on both of my parents so much in the past two years. I do not know how I would have come through this without them. I still do not have the results of the scans from last week. I hate to put my family through the waiting. And my friends too. I am guessing I will get the results soon. Perhaps Monday. I am praying for good results.

Today we will all get together for dinner for my Mom’s birthday. We are not having a party, she wants to celebrate later (she said she needs a little more time to warm up to the idea of turning 75). I think she wants to wait on a party until she knows that I am healthy and cancer free.

I have every intention of having a party for her. But, for now, it will be dinner.

Please feel free to post a birthday message to my Mom here . . . I will make sure she sees it!

Thank you for your continued prayers.

Love and peace,

    Happy Birthday, Carol! (You can’t be 75…demand a recount!)

    Happy birthday, Lisa’s mom. Having lost my mother when she was just 66 years old, I love seeing women about my age with their moms. You’re both so lucky to have each other. Have a wonderful day.

    Happy Birthday, Carol,
    A lot of important things happened on April 30; and then you were born, and then nothing else was so important.
