Happy Birthday Mom

Today (September 25th)  is my mom's birthday.  She is coming up to help my sister with her baby and I will be partying in Utah for the weekend.  So since I can't be here to celebrate her birthday I figure the least I can do is honor her with a birthday post...

My mom's heart.

It is huge, she loves deeply.

It is forgiving, she forgives quickly and easily.

It is giving, she gives to everyone...almost to a fault.

It is humble, she has never forgotten where she came from.

It is compassionate, she sacrifices her own comfort and convenience to help others out.

It is strong, she has overcome many trials and has helped many people get through theirs.

It is full, full of gratitude and joy. You can see this whenever she is around her grandchildren.

It is Christ-like, she is always striving to follow His teachings and share His gospel with others.

This is my mom's heart.  This is my mom.
