Christmas Day, Mom's Birthday...

People often say that mothers are the best teachers in the world. Over the years, 
I have come to know that it couldn’t be truer. Thanks for being the best mother 
and teacher in the whole world. Happy Birthday mommy!...

What better feeling is there that to wake up on Christmas morning surrounded by the warmth
 of family and to the sounds of laughter and all the good smells of Christmas goodies?  Nothing
 better if you ask me and today I am very fortunate to be in the right place at the right
 time.  Like I always said I am a fortunate person and I never forget it.

What makes Christmas even better in our family is that it is also our mom's birthday.
From little this was the one day our mom had "off"   Our dad would make sure she 
did nothing on her special day.  One day in the year we catered to her.

Times have changed we have all grown and have families of our own, but the one thing that did 
not change was Christmas Day.  Our dad still caters to her.  Of course now that they are

 "alone" more so.  Today with most of us together mom be given the special birthday
 treatment, but at the end of the day she will once again prepare many goodies 
for us.   We will once again be her little girls and we will be loving it.

I will tell you there has not been much sleep going on so far, and we are loving it
 and having the time of our lives.  For once in a long time most of us are 
in the same home at the same time. Can you say HAPPY?

My Christmas Holiday has so far been more than I could have hoped for.
I wish you all the same and that yours is also a wonderful time.

Merry Christmas to all.  Happy Birthday to our mom and may each of you find and
 appreciate the simple joys of being together and enjoying each other.  Life is short and we 
must always make the most of it.  For tomorrow is never guaranteed, but for us this moment sure is.

Mommy we love you.  Throughout our lives,
 you have always been the strength that holds us up in the storm of life. 

Mom, you are my best friend.  My greatest confidante.
I couldn't be any happier to have you as my mother.  Happy Birthday...
