I believe that God puts certain people into our lives for a reason. Sometimes it's to help us learn, sometimes it's to encourage us, or strengthen our faith. But whatever purpose God had in bringing us together, I'm just thankful that He did...
...for you've been such a source of joy and inspiration in my life, and it means more to me than I can ever say to have the gift of your friendship and caring.
Family ties grow strong and deep when they are nourished by love. Mom, You're so generous with your time, your help, and most all, with your love. Thank you for being the best mother and grandmother a family could ever have.
Do you know how much you mean to me, Mom? I know I haven't always seemed very appreciative, but I've always felt lucky to have a mother like you...
And when I think of all you've given me -- the values you've taught me, the sacrifices you've made for me, the confidence and security that came from knowing I was loved -- I realize how much you've helped me shape my life into a happy and fulfilling one.
You have a way about you, Mom, An understanding touch -- Your warm concern and thoughtfulness Have always meant so much. You've known just when to listen And just what words to say -- You've spanned the years with friendship In your loving, giving way...
And all of these are reasons Why you're thought so highly of And why our birthday wish for you Is made with so much love.
