Thanks mom & dad!

I once heard of someone who, on every one of their birthdays, sent their parents flowers to say thanks for giving life to them. Since my birthday is on Monday, I would like to tell my parents thank you for giving me life and for everything they have done for me and continue to do for me. My mom is definitely my best friend. I can pretty much tell her anything. We talk just about everyday. People usually think that we are sisters instead of mother and daughter-she loves that!
My dad and I are so much alike that we butt heads a lot. It was really bad when I was a sassy teenager. Since I have grown up a lot, it has gotten better. Of course, we are still so much alike that we still have the occasional tift, but he is my daddy and I will always be his little girl!

The older I get, the more I appreciate everything that my parents have done for me. They could have given us kids whatever we wanted, but they chose to teach us how to work for what we wanted. They gave us a wonderful life and were always there to cheer us on. They still are. If I could choose a mom and a dad, I would definitely choose them again. They really are the best parents ever.
Happy Birthday to me and thank you mom and dad for giving me life!

Gasp...firs you look just like your gorgeous momma! Wow! Beautiful. And...Happy Birthday for yesterday...

I've heard that about sending flowers to one's parents as well. It is a precious thought.

Now~about your comment on my HOME SWEET HOME post today...

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....

You made me tear up. Whenever I think of moving I keep thinking of all the things we've done in this home, the parties, the birthdays, the visitors we've had who've gone to heaven, etc. and then I can't bare the thought of leaving. Maybe I'll feel differently one day but so far...nope. Staying put.

Love to you~

Rebecca

It was wonderful that you took the time to stop in for tea last week. I am still in catch up mode from my trip but tea is being. Hope you can join the fun! The rose teacup and plate are divine!
Wonderful tribute to your parents this week.
Have a blessed week.
