Happy 80th Birthday Mom!

80 years Young!

Dear Mom,
As your 80th Birthday arrives this weekend, it's time for reflection.  Imagine those days long ago as a child and what special times and special people meant to you.  As a teenager it was all about fun and friends, laughter and smiles.  Then as a young wife and new mother your days were filled with wishes and dreams you had, not only for yourself but your family as well.  Loving arms wrapped around you, kisses and hugs too numerous to count, XXX OOO XXX OOO.  Your birthday became a day to celebrate friendships and the community our neighbors share.  Many have shared your special day with you, in one way or another, ahhh... good memories treasured.  
Reminiscing over the years, a walk through time.   But birthdays aren't just for looking back, it's also time to look forward. New friends to make, places to see, skills to learn and teach, love to continue and grow.  What an exciting ride we take through life.  What goes around, comes around.  It's all about give and take, love and laughter, helping others and being helped.
This special birthday greeting is being sent your way, with many happy wishes for a truly perfect day.
Love Always, Diane
