To My Mother - Happy Birthday!!

_____
_
I am the middle child of three and had one incredible advantage in this life - - I was born with a great mom. A mom,who I am told, carried me around for the entire first year of my life never putting me down - until my sister showed up 14 months later. There was enough of her to go around though, for all of us. You see, love is something my mom has never been short of. Another wonderful gift she gave to me were her words. She chose to praise my positive attributes instead of criticizing any shortcomings. She seemed to feel that her children were perfect - in her eyes. My husband accuses me of having the same rose colored glasses with those I love and I am proud of that. Something I got from my mom. She also allowed me the freedom to travel whatever path I chose and even make my own mistakes from time to time - but still she let me decide. Her trust in me gave me the ability to trust in myself ultimately. When my mom smiles she lights up from inside and gives off a kind of glow. It is her pureness of heart and kindness that comes through and it is irresistible. She read to me - played with me - stood up for me and loved me. She coaxed me out into the world and helped me see the good in life and others. She may not be perfect but what she has given is perfect and all that I am I owe to her.
