Happy birthday mom. I wish you were still here so I could wish it to you in person and give you a big hug.

Remember that time I put together a bad homemade “surprise party” when you turned 36? I put streamers and balloons on the door and made a big sign that said “36″ on it and invited your friend from next door over. You were so embarassed. Could you imagine what I would do to you now with 19 more years of experience? You always gave us the best birthday parties – I wish I could give you one just as awesome.

I wish I could have done more for you. I am so thankful for you. I miss you. I love you.

    That’s very sweet.  Nice picture too.  I’m sorry you lost your mother so early.

    Having just lost my own dad a couple of months ago, your post really hits home.  I love your final sentiment—I have the same feelings for my own parent.

    Your posts about your mom always touch my heart.  I miss my own mom so much, but you have a beautiful way of saying/writing what I feel.
