Mom Turns 70

My mom turns 70 today!

For most of my time at home she was a single
parent. I was a mess. And they had not
diagnosed or medicated whatever it was
i had!

But she worked hard. Supported me and my
sister, and I look back with a lot of smiles and
great memories!

Saturday night we had a birthday party for
her and she was super surprised. There
were a lot of laughs, tears and good times.

One of the biggest reasons for my success
is because of mom’s complete bias. She
always pumped us up. Always told us we
could do anything. Always said we were
the smartest. Always cheered us on even
when we were losing. Always comforted
us when we failed. Always celebrated with
“I knew you could” when we succeeded.

Here’s to you mom and other moms
around the world who keep encouraging,
building and shaping!

    How sweet Paul. I did the same thing for my mom’s 70th. My mom also was a single mom of five of us. So glad you have her near you. Happy Birthday Mrs. Evans!!
