Happy Birthday, Mom!

My mother was the first of 3 children.
She is the only girl with two younger brothers.
She was born in New York and raised there until she was 13.
At the age of 13 she moved from New York to the Midwest.
I don’t think she has ever gotten used to that move, as her heart is still in New York.  

Here she is as Miss Indiana in a roller skating competition.

Wasn't she hot stuff?!
 She was an incredible roller skater.
I can remember going to the roller skating rink as a kid and watching her do her thing.
I don’t think I was ever as good as she was. Well, I know I wasn’t. It’s just one of her many talents.

My mother has the best heart and will do anything for anyone.
She is one of my best friends.
She has picked me up each time I have fallen, dusted me off and encouraged me to back on my feet.

The best part of having her as my mom, is my kids having her as a grandmother. 
And they simply adore her!

I’m blessed to be her daughter; she's the greatest and I love her dearly.
