Happy Birthday Mama!

Today is a very special day! It's my moms birthday!
She may not know it but I get very emotional about my mom. 
She's a very special person, a genuine person with a genuine heart. 
A strong person with more strength than anyone I know. 

Just a few memories that have always stuck with me with my mom.

It was June 2003 and we were on a camping trip. I always had pretty bad asthma. Well that trip I didn't have any medication with me and had an asthma attack. I had to control my breathing while I slept. Not easy to do but I have gotten used to it. 
My mom sat there next to me ALL NIGHT praying for me. I don't think she even went to bed. Stayed there the whole time making sure I was ok. 

When I was in the hospital with my first child. On complete bed rest. She took turns with Evan staying with me overnight. Helped wash my hair {and bathe me :/  because I mean I could not get out of bed for three weeks!} I watched day in and day out. Either my mom or Evan sleeping next to me in the most uncomfortable chair! Bringing in coffee for each other as they switched shifts. 

All of these things might seem like a thing any mom would do. 
My mom has a lot of health issues that keep her in constant pain, or extreme exhaustion.
But she always puts other first before herself. Always taking care of people in need with no consideration for her self. Always with a smile on her face!
Happy Birthday Mama!! Love you more than my luggage!
