I know I am one day early for Tea Tuesday but guess what...I don't care! I am starting early in honor of my Mom's Birthday which is TODAY!!!!
I follow a wonderful and inspiring blog, called "A Delightsome Life" and reflecting on the best of summer, I immediately think of of my Mom and celebrating her birthday during the best season ever! So fitting it is with the bright flowers, colors and warm comforting rays of the sun. My mom has been the sunshine in my life for sure!
I know I have said a lot about my Mom in pasts posts...that is because there is a lot to say. She has taught me everything I know about about darn near everything important.
Like....never take yourself too serious...
A little over a year ago I asked her, "Mom, if you could go anywhere on a trip..where would go?" After little thought and nearly no hesitation, she said, "The south...Charleston and Savannah".
I replied, "Mom, are you sure you don't want to go somewhere in Europe...like Paris??"

"No," she said. "For years I have read about many wonderful places to visit in Charleston and Savannah...this is where I would want to go."
Three months later we were there.
Here is a story about my Mom with a few pictures from our trip.
Mom... I love you...
My Mom has taught me many things...we share the same soul, I believe.
My mom has always faced the tangles of life head on...she taught me never to be afraid. When I was diagnosed with brain cancer...she never wavered.
She is my angel..
Because of her strength and love, I have had the courage to take a road less traveled...
And climb to wonderful heights...
My Mom has instilled into me the importance of reflecting upon my treasures and being grateful for what I have.
She has also taught me the importance of giving our gifts to others..
Without expectation of what is in return.
Though my faith has often been tested...my Mom continues to remind me that with God, anything is possible.
I am so grateful for every moment I have with my Mom.
Time on this earth is so precious.
Take time to reflect on our relationships with others..build bridges, not walls.
Mom...when you are ready....Paris is waiting for us!!
Happy Birthday MOM!!
I can't wait to see what you are sharing for Tea Party Tuesday in celebration of my Mom's Birthday!!!
