My Mama’s 80th birthday celebration did not go as planned…as has not one thing in the world over the past six weeks.
Mom had planned an awesome reunion of all her kids, grandchildren, cousins, aunts and uncles. We were all very excited to be able to be together for a weekend in the Smokies.
We celebrated together anyway….no shaming here!
Look at sweet Halle checking everyone out 😇
It was so fun “seeing” each other. Maw Kitty was so happy with our surprise :). A special shout out for Mignonne for getting Mom all set up on her computer 👏and surprising her at the same time!!
What can I say for my sweet Mama for her big 80th??
First off we all adore you…you are the glue that holds our family together. You are the reason I want to be a good mother myself. You are also the reason I love a good laugh. You taught me to appreciate laughter, that humor can be found in any situation. I think the most important thing I have learned from you is “each day is a new day, you can start over tomorrow”. I think I thought that was a bible verse growing up haha! (it is biblical actually, but of course you knew that).
The only thing I remember you saying that hurt my feelings was “I’m watching it just like you” as we watched tv and I asked 4,343 questions. I swore I would never say that to my children. I think I have said it 10,343 times 😂.
The day Allie was born, I told you I had no idea you loved me this much…a mother’s love continues to amaze me…being loved by you and loving my own children.
Happy birthday sweet Mama!!!
I know this was not the birthday celebration you planned, but I can see in your eyes how special this night was. We love you dearly!!
Happy 80th birthday….your children are catching up with you quickly 🙂
