Happy Birthday Mom!

10.29.2008

So my mom's birthday was yesterday. Don't worry, I didn't forget. I just needed to find this photo because it's one of my favorites. My mom is now 62-years-old. I can tell you that because my mom doesn't mind getting older, for the most part.

ode to my mom
When she was young she would pray every night for wings.
She is a faerie of the wisest.
Favorite passtime: laughing with family.
Has a deep love for music, and is a master organist.
Is a woman of autumn.
Generous.
Has simple desires.
Has few, but lovely & meaningful possessions.
Gives me her childhood books.
Loves Beatrix Potter.
Is the neighborhood favorite.
Has mastered the "art of conversation"
Is an optimist.
Open-hearted and open-minded.
Loves hymns of praise and joy.
Faithful-to God and to people.
The most beautiful and simple woman I know.
Oh, to be like Mom!
