Today would have been my Mom’s 55th Birthday. I’m pretty sure she would have not approved of me spreading that news on my blog or on Facebook.
Mom has been in Heaven for 10 years now. Hard to believe it’s been that long, yet sometimes it feels like yesterday that I was at a cemetery with my family and closest friends, sending 45 gold balloons into the heavens to celebrate the 45 years she had spent on this earth with us. When she left us, she left an empty spot in my heart and life. But, thankfully, my faith in God tells me that she is in Heaven and we will all be together one day – in God’s Kingdom. But, for today, I am celebrating the woman she was, the mother that taught me about love for her children, that gave me a huge heart for others, and that passed on her creative side to me and the artist in her to my daughter, Ella.
Here’s to you mom….I love you and miss you! Happy 55th!
