Happy Birthday Mother

Rudda Ward posted this on facebook today for mom’s birthday. It was taken at Rudda’s wedding in the late 60’s.

Today is our mom’s birthday!

We aren’t with her today but we wish we were. Birthdays are meant to be spent with family. This isn’t the first year she’s had to celebrate alone. It makes me sad.

But she doesn’t make us sad. This woman makes us happy!!

She is strong. She is loving. She is beautiful. She is full of life. She is a friend. She is a confidant. She is a loving grandmother. She is the Mother of all Mothers!

We have been through a lot together. We have cried many tears together. She has listened to me as I poured out all the pieces of my broken heart out to her. She has been with me in my most joyous moments. She has been scared with me, happy with me, tearful with me, and excited with me.

When I look at my days of mothering I see so many ways I wish I was more like her. She is a great example of a Mother.

We love you Mom!!
More than we know how to express!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
