To you Mom!

Back in November…My beautiful, giving, smart & loving

mother had a birthday!  November to now was a whirlwind, and I haven’t had the chance to blog about it until today…

My mom is the rock of our family.  It amazes me how strong she is FOR US.  I know her birthday must have been tough for her, but you would have never been able to tell.  We tried our best to make it a great one just as she deserves.  We went to Mazen’s, had a delicious birthday cake, ate great food, and all of us were there except my Dad.  I know she missed him…we all did. I know it wasn’t easy.


I hope you know how much I love you…how much I RESPECT you…how much my children ADORE you…how much HAPPINESS you have given us, but most importantly how much you’ve taught us.  You’ve taught us to LOVE, to hold our heads up high, the importance of sticking together not just in times of need, to make the best of the hardest situations, and what it means to simply(not always easily) be a good person.

Thank you.

We love you…we are here for you…and we know what you are going through and have gone through isn’t easy.  We realize we couldn’t possibly understand what you feel. We know your pain must be deeper than you show…we know some days you probably want to cry, scream & quit…we want you to know that we are here for you always.

Because we love you.

Wow! Thank you so much Rebecca for your expression of love. Your loving words mean more to me than you can imagine. I am one of the luckiest persons on earth to have been blessed with such a loving family. Yes, it is hard living each day without your Dad, my loving husband and best friend. I l lost a part of myself when I lost your dad. You and your sisters and brother help each day because I see his spirit in each of you. Although there will always be a tremendous void in my life, I know one day I will be rejoined with your dad and family members who have gone before me. Until then my committment is to try and live a better life-to be fair, honest, to strive for excellence, to serve others by offering patience, nurturance and encouragemnt, and to live with integrity. Thank you for your presentaion of love to me. I love you with all of my heart. Mom
