Loved You Yesterday, Love You Still

She was the most beautiful woman in the world to me when I was growing up.  


She read to me at night...


didn't seem to mind too much if my toys took up a little room on the couch... ( ;


and always knew how to give the best warm hugs. 


Today is her birthday, and I hope it is filled with God's light and the love of her family and friends, to whom she has given so much of herself over the years. 


Loved you yesterday,
Love you still. 
Always have, 
Always will.


Wishing you a very happy birthday, Mom.
