Today is our Stevens (Bubba) 25th , and my Momma's 67th birthday!! And my prayer for the day is that Steven always knows how proud of him we are and just how much we love him!! And also Father if you could please for nothing but sellfish reasons give my momma just half a minute of clarity so she knows it is her birthday, and that she knows she is surrounded by her girls, her devoted husband and almost all of here grandchildren that love her oh so much!!! Having her family all around her was always her favorite thing in the whole world. I pray this prayer in your sons precious name....Amen
I am not taking anything away from our son, but he knows how I feel and I can still say things to him, so Happy birthday Momma, there is none like you in all the world. Even when we could be screaming at one another one minute we were cracking up laughing together the next. There are so many things about me that are YOU. You have been robbed of so much and for that my heart breaks every single minute of every single day. It breaks my heart that new people in our life just dont know who you really were and I feel like they have been robbed . Because you were so unique and funny, you were feisty, and mouthy and thats putting it gently, lol.....and at the same time so darn loving and nurturing, you loved everyone and you never met a stranger. Momma my promise to you is to always make you look pretty, keep your hair pretty even if that means following you all around the house with scissors to cut it because you dont know how to sit down anymore, that means always keeping your nails pretty and clean and your toenails the same, I will continue to fight you so I can bathe you and even though you and daddy always tortured us with your false teeth, I proudly will continue to take them out and clean them for you even though sometimes you tell me you are gonna knock the crap out of me....I know you dont mean it, I will keep following you with the bowl of water all over the house trying my best to keep your legs shaved and I will keep your eyebrows tidy. I will do all of the things it takes to care for someone in your condition and as long as you continue to let me do these things for you I will do them as long as I have life in my body, you are my MOMMA and I owe you so much. Momma I know that God has a plan and all I can pray for now is that even if for one second you will know who I am talking about when I am finally able to say, "Look Nonny here is your granddaughter Franceska". Happy Birthday to you my sweet little Momma, I love you more than word could ever express.
Love you "favorite" daughter...LOL
