Happy Birthday Maw!

I'm a day late - but wishing my Mom a very happy birthday!!

She's off in Sweden enjoying serving in the temple there for our church and touring the country and surrouding areas with her husband John.  Such a rough life eh?

Hope your day was the greatest  Mom- I know it was pretty awesome for me!  Without your being born, there would be no me.  Without me, there would be no three little boys who grew into fabulous men, without the oldest of those now grown and incredible men, there would be no darling 4 year old who has stolen all of our hearts.

I learned my best swearing at her feet.  But I also learned how to get on my knees and seek God's help when I need it.  To hang on when the going gets tough, and most importantly - don't forget where I come from.  All perfectly wonderful lessons.

So you see Maw, you got a pretty good legacy going!

Happy Birthday!!

I loved the line.."I learned the best swearing at her feet." My kids would probably say the same thing about me.

Send you mom my thoughts of love and wishing her a happy birthday.

What an amazing mission - to serve in the temple in Sweden! We're mostly Danish in our family but love our scandinavian heritage!
