Happy Birthday, Amanda.


Thirty-five years ago today at 7:04 P.M., my life changed for the better.


My daughter, this Little Man's Momma, was born. 

Everything changed. 


There is simply no way to explain that kind of love... and it grows with each one.


It is just something you have to experience for yourself...


I am so grateful for her... and grateful that she finally knows how very much she is loved...

Happy Birthday, Daughter of Mine.  I am so proud of you... and, I love you more than I could possibly ever find words to express.  XOXOXOXO  Always and forever, Mom

Blessings to all~

Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter!! What a loving tribute from her mother.

I can't wait to get my hands on (and teeth into) some of those Virginia apples!! They'd be even better if they came with those two sweet little men.

Best,
Bonnie

Happy Birthday to beautiful Amanda! The day of our child's birth is as special to us mothers (if not more so!) as it is for them. Blessings to you both.

Awwww...Happy Birthday, Amanda! Your mom loves you very much.

Amanda said...

I always thought I knew how loved I was. Turns out I only knew a fraction of it. Until now. :-) thank you for always showing me the depths of your love as much as any parent is possible of doing. I am so blessed. Truly, truly blessed to have you as my mom. Love you!!!

Tanna, a wonderful tribute to your daughter. Sometimes I think a child's birthday is as significant for the one who gave birth that day. You have a beautiful family ---and your daughter is a wonderful photographer! The baby is getting big!

Your daughter is so beautiful! Happy Birthday to you both :) I can really understand about the love a mother has for her children. Now I'm going to be a grandmother. My daughter will finally understand how much we love her once her little boy is born. You had me in tears this morning! So well written and heartfelt indeed! Blessings to you too :)

Debbie said...
