Happy Birthday Mom!


Dear Mom,

You and dad are always talking about how fun it is to be grandparents and what a special experience it is to watch your children be parents. Well, today, on your birthday, I want to tell you that it is likewise a very special experience watching your parents be grandparents! It is so neat to watch you have so much love for my children. It is neat to watch the fun things that you do with them and to watch the special way you interact with them. I sometimes stand back and watch my kids enjoying themselves so much in your presence and can remember fond memories from my own childhood. My children are so blessed to have you be such an integral part of their lives. I know that it takes effort to make the "long distance relationship" work and I appreciate all that you do so that even though you are far away, you are always in my childrens' hearts. I love you.

Happy Birthday!

I just did a birthday post for my dad! Aren't we lucky to have been blessed with amazing parents? Your mom seems wonderful.

You're back, you're back! Yea! You're back! It's a lovely post to your mom. And I have to agree, having someone you love so much love your kids is priceless. The one thing that breaks my heart is that my kids will not know my father in their lifetime. I miss the influence he would have on them. But, I guess I'll just have to be a great storyteller and tell them all about him. And I'll enjoy their other grandparents all the more while they are here!
