Today like many others my family got together to celebrate a very special mama in our lives...

My mom is a huge influence in my life.

My mom loves my dad wholeheartedly.

My mom always told me that one day I'd meet a man that deserved me... she was right.

I can remember a few distinct times I saw a mama bear come out in my mom when I was a child... and only now, after having Miss Add, do I truly know that power that embodies a mother to protect her child.

My mom is one of the most thoughtful people I know. 

In a world full of hurry ups and get things done, details often fall through the cracks... but my mom notices the details... and handles them thoughtfully.

Mom can see the solution to a problem and find a way to get there when you are completely overwhelmed.

Mom can pack the unpackable... she just sees how things can fit together.

The folks that count my mama as a friend are very lucky...

And, I am blessed to be one of them.
