On The Eve Of 43

Everything I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.
                                     -Abraham Lincoln

I miss my mom every day, but mostly on my own birthday.   She was the first person to go to when the best things happened, when the worst things happened, or just when I needed to know I was loved.

She was everything a mom should be, and I am forever grateful she was mine.


  1. Oh, Kathleen, I send my love, hugs and prayers. Happy Birthday

  2. Happy Birthday, dear friend...

    And this is simply beautiful...

    Her love for you continues in your love for your sweet children. : )

  3. Mary Black rosked it as a mom! She would be proud of the mother and wife you are today. Happy Birthday Babe!

  4. Awwww, she sounds wonderful! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

  5. Think of you..... Your mom sounded like a wonderful person.

    Such a beautiful picture of the two of you.

  6. I know I said stuff this morning , but I wanted to tell you again, I love you, I love this picture, always have . I loved your mom, she was an angel , truly with the kindest heart and most gentle way about her . Tricia is right, she would be proud of you . I hope you had a great day , you deserve it ! Happy Birthday ! I am honored to be your friend for the last 30 some years !!! Life is better with you in it ! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

  7. This is a beautiful picture and a simple (but states so much) memorial to your mother. It certainly is not easy having lost a parent. In fact it is a terrible club to be a member of. I'm sure she is looking down on you with so much pride. No that she is always with you and have a very happy birthday!
