Dear Mama!

Today is my Mommy’s Birthday!

It’s such a wonderful occasion! Every year I am so unbelievably blessed to experience it!

You see, my Mommy came very, very, very close to dying a few years ago! Here in the south, there is this tiny little brown spider that lives in the wooded areas. It’s a nasty little things that will mess you up if it bites you! One hot spring afternoon, one found my mother!

My Mom already had a compromised immune system, so this little one did a number on her body. She couldn’t walk, barely ate, was hospitalized multiple times, and temporarily loss her sight! During this time both my brother and I had graduations weeks apart, my Mom was still there for us! She came to my brother’s graduation in a wheelchair and was rushed to the hospital afterwards, but she sat there in pain just to be there for him! 

She is a powerhouse! Years later she is walking, working, and driving again. Seriously! She went from riding in a wheelchair to wearing high heels! She still works everyday, cares for my grandfather, and goes on vacation at least 3 times a year! On top of that, she is very active in her church and her social organization! She is amazing!

I am grateful to have my mother! She has shown me what being a woman is really about! She is strong, classic, and smart! I know everyone loves their mom, but my mom is definitely a cut above the rest!

So please join me in wishing her an awesome birthday!

Happy Birthday Mommy! I love you!😘

  2. Finess,
    You are truly blessed to have Lorie as your mom. She is amazing, she keeps me grounded, and she is always encouraging me and my spiritual growth. I think you have a typo, though. That “3” should be “30”…LOL!! I lovingly call her my globetrotter. Seriously, I hope she has a wonderful day and many, many, many more birthdays to share with you!!!
