Happy Birthday Momma!


On this day in 1956, something did happen...

these two beautiful women were born.


One of them my own mommy.

(that's her on the right)

the other fine lady is Mimi's Toes.


52 years ago the world became a better place because of them!



My mother and mimi's toes are both full of love, laughter, grace and beauty.

All the things that little girls are made of...



Mom...

You taught me how to love, how to give every bit of my soul for the ones I care about and how to laugh. Good God and a watermelon, have we laughed. Because of you I know it's okay to sing out loud even if you can't carry a tune or to dance even when people are watching.
Mom, I've said it a million times and I will never be able to say it enough, I love you.

Happy Birthday Mommy

All my love, forever and ever,

D. Marie

I can't believe, I am the first to comment...Thank you so much for the very touching (sob sob) Birthday wish. So far, it's a great day, even though I do have to work. I did check the obituaries first thing and was glad I wasn't in them. I feel priviledged to share my day with your beautiful fun sprited mom. You and my daughter are the Bestest of the daughter's....Much Love to you, Rhonda (mimi)

Oh this is too too sweet. I can't handle the mother-tributey stuff. Makes me cry. Happy Birthday to your mom and Mimi.

I love my mom too. (even though she passed on all her neuroses to me)
