Happy Birthday, Mama

Today is the most incredible person in the whole wide world's birthday. My mama. I can't tell you how wonderful she is. But I'll try... :)

Whenever anyone needs anything she figures out a way to help them get it. She is affectionately known as "Nana" to everyone in our church and family. She is stubborn yet sweet, courageous and a fighter. With everything that's been placed on her plate in the last few years, she is still is full of faith and loves her God more than anything. When people gasp at the fact that she has a brain tumor she smiles and says - "BUT, God saw fit to give me a very very rare one...", as if she was special. ha-ha. How can you not smile?

The greatest thing about my mom is when you hear her talk about her relationship with God. She can't help but get emotional when she talks about her encounters with Him and something new she's learned about Him. This is what makes her beautiful inside and out.

Happy Birthday to you, Mama. I love you.
