Are you wondering what my Mama and Elvis have to do with each other? Well first of all, they share a birthday, not to mention the fact that my Mama also brought me up listening to Elvis records! Today, January 8th, my mother is turning sixty-five.
I'm really blessed to have a mother like mine. She is a wonderful Christian example of what a mother should be. We've always been close. Thanks to her guidance, I am the person I am today. I have great memories from my childhood. She knew how to guide me through those teenage years too....and dating! We prayed together for the guy I would marry...for the babies I wanted after I was married...and many more things along the way. We prayed for her too. Two and a half years ago, she was diagnosed with the early stages of breast cancer. She came through that great and is still getting good reports every time she goes to the doctor. (PTL!)
My mom (and dad) live next door to me. I'm so glad! We might not see each other everyday, but we always talk (usually many times). I love having them next door!
Today, I just want to say Happy Birthday, Mama. I'm very proud to call you my mother. Thanks for the way you (and daddy) raised me!
I love you!

(Enjoy the Elvis music...Mama's favorite Elvis song, "Loving You" was also played at our wedding...we tell everyone that Elvis sang at our wedding.)
And last of all, I'll leave you with her favorite scripture....she used to put this in my lunch often with the notes that she always put in there for me!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and he will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
