The Big 6-0!

I am not sure if you noticed, but I have been away for a few days. I took a little trip to my hometown to help my Mom celebrate her birthday! On Monday, my Mom turned 60! Happy Birthday Mom!

If God allowed me to pick my own parents, I couldn't have picked a better pair. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful and loving parents. Growing up my Mom taught me many valuable life lessons. She taught me to be humble. She showed me how to be kind and the importance of being kind to others. She also instilled in me a positive outlook on life.

My Mom is one of my very best friends! We truly have a special bond. I trust her with all of my secrets and tell her all my worries. She is always there to listen and to give great advice. I am so thankful and blessed that we are both mother and daughter and friends.

Of course, I have to share a photo of the birthday girl with you, so here it is! This is a cute snap shot of my Mom and Dad dancing at my wedding. Aren't they the cutest!!!
