My Momma

Pretty simple and to-the-point title, isn't it?  How do you sum everything up and make it sound catchy? Doesn't always work - I'm no poet, and I know it! lol  Okay, so that rhymed, but that was an easy one. ;-) You know who's a good writer? My momma. She has a gift of words, something I can only admire.

There are actually many things I admire about her.

She is giving - in so many ways.
Kind. An encourager.
A good listener - oye, I can sure talk her ear off at times - lol!

A great cook/baker. She can just throw things together and make great "something" --- famous for whipping together cookies by just adding things from the cupboard, lol. Ask her for a recipe and oftentimes, she'll say "I don't know, I just threw it together."

She loves God's nature and spending time outside...
She gives great hugs.
She's a wonderful grandmother to my girls.
She's always willing to help.

My hubby says she's the BEST mother-in-law anyone could have. :)

She's fun-loving.
She's not afraid of a little hard work.
She's a faithful, godly woman.
She is wise.
She is my FRIEND.

I am so thankful for her, for our relationship. I only hope that when my daughters grow up, we have the kind of relationship that I have with my mom now.  I really could go on and on...but I've done enough of that already. :)

Happy Birthday to my mother, my friend.
Proverbs 31:28

This is her birthday card...In fact, I bought this set because it reminded me of her. :)  It's a new set, called Nature Walk.

Well, what do you think?
I took the pic on the run...sorry it's not the best quality.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. Crystal, what a lovely tribute and card for your mother. It brought a few tears to my eyes because my mom had a lot of those attributes. She has been gone many years not but there are so many days I wish I could talk to her. She was a terrific listener. God bless your mom and you for being such a thoughtful, caring daughter.

  2. Happy Birthday to your WONDERFUL mother...I count myself lucky to know this lovely person you so beautifully described! And it's true - she does give GREAT hugs (a trait she passed on to her equally wonderful daughter!). :)

  3. Welcome back - I have missed you. This is a lovely, lovely card and what a sweet tribute to your mom. She is truly blessed to have you as a daughter and you are blessed to have been loved by her. The Lord is so good. Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  4. Love the card and you tribute to your mother. TFS

  5. Your mother sounds like such a special woman Crystal. You are truly blessed and it's so nice that you can appreciate and see all of that now while you have an opportunity to share life with her. Your girls will follow in your footsteps because they too are blessed to have such a wonderful grandma and mom. Beautiful card and beautiful tribute. Hope she has a wonderful birthday!

  6. Crystal, What a lovely tribute to your mom. You are so blessed to have her still. I miss mine everyday! I love your card. It is beautiful. Happy Birthday to your mom!

  7. I think that's a beautiful card, and I love all the things you said about your mom. They sure are the greatest! TFS.

  8. Aw, Crys, that was so sweet! I hope someday my girls feel that way about me. And your momma is lucky to have you for a daughter. Thanks for sharing, & happy birthday to your mom!


Go ahead...make my day! :)
