May 5th...Happy Bday Mom!!!

Happy Birthday Mom!

It is not rare, nor has it ever been..
For me to see my Mom give away a purse, while she was still using it...
all because some one said they wanted one just like it. 

For me to see my Mom take a pin off the blouse she was wearing, 
all because a perfect stranger said it would match her outfit 

For me to see my Mom anonymously buy lunch for countless soldiers, 
or give them very heartfelt, eye to eye, thank you.

For me to figure out she has left gift on people's front porches without a note...
or cupcakes in my very own kitchen. 

She most certainly does not forget to show hospitality to strangers and loved ones alike.

You walk away from seeing her and know that you matter..
you know that you have been heard....
you know you are loved....

If you've known her for 30 minutes, or 60 plus years, 
you're nodding your head as you read this.

She celebrates every moment- of everyday- no matter the circumstances. 
She's a survivor- a joy bringer-a life giver- she is our very own real life giving tree.
Today- I celebrate HER!

Thank You God, for choosing her to be mine.

In His Dust,
