Happy Birthday, Momma

Happy Birthday, Momma

Happy Birthday, Momma!
I am sending you a Spiritual Bouquet
to celebrate your everlasting love that 
you showed Charlie and me
throughout our childhood years 
and into our adulthood.
You were always there 
for whatever tribulations 
we encountered, 
and you were certainly there 
for all our milestones.
No matter how many years have passed, 
there are times I wish that 
just one more time I could hear your laughter,
like when you blitzed Charles playing gin!
Are the two of you now playing cards?
I hope so.
here are your birthday cards:
Our Blessed Mother is
holding the rosary made with the roses
from Father Keane's funeral.

Happy birthday from all of us!
I love you,
Norma Ruth

Dear Nonnie what a beautiful post to your mother! There cannot be a more beautiful tribute to the divine mother than one of such love to an earthly mother!! Thank you for joining in every week! Your banner still takes my breath away when I open your blog!! Love to you

thank you, Hettienne! This image is a favorite of mine; I consider myself lucky to have caught the tree and flowers in full bloom.
