Happy Birthday, Mom... (yeah, I wrote it ;)...

For all the times you helped me up,
when I would trip or fall,
For all the days I've felt so loved; your smile says it all...

For all the times you hugged me tight and tucked me into bed, and all the times you gave up 'your' time to be with me instead.

For all the childhood memories that many never get, the laughs, the hugs and all the memories; even the ones that aren't yet...

There may never be a time when I can truly understand, the path that God has left for me and the things that He has planned.

But all I know is that I am blessed to have you by my side, and I pray that I'm the kind of Mom who can be that kind of guide

For my own amazing children, whose hearts every day are touched, by the love of the BEST Mom and Grandma who we love so VERY MUCH!

~written by Jessica Diedrich for my AMAZING MOTHER...my Best Friend...my everything.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

~Jess, Joe, Dann, Suzy, Chris, Madelynn, Jacky, Nicky and Ava~
