Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is Mom's 70th birthday. My Mom is the greatest. She is a beautiful, smart, kind, talented, thoughtful and fun person and everyone who knows her wants to be adopted. In fact I know that Bonnie and Janice are already on the waiting list. Mom is an excellent cook, can sew the most gorgeous of quilts, knits incredible sweaters and can fix a water heater with a blow torch! She is a woman of many talents. As many of you have noticed, I'm lucky enough to share my love of knitting with Mom (she taught me) and to spend a fair amount of time with her. She and Dad live only an hour away so we get to see them quite often. She is always there when I need help with the kids or a buddy for a yarn sale (I think I'm a bad influence on her). My kids are very lucky to grow up knowing their Granny so well. She is definitely a very special part of their lives and they adore her. Recently when she was here it was like she had 4 arms that people were pulling in different directions. Everyone wanted Granny to help them with what they were doing. I am so very lucky to have such a wonderful Mom and I love her very, very much. So please join me in wishing Mom a wonderful birthday. You can leave her a message in the comments or visit her on Ravelry - code name Grani. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

Love your birthday message to your Mom! Perfect :)

Enjoy every moment with your mom. I had a super mom who I was extremely close to, too, and I miss her terribly now that she is no longer with us, but I do think of her everyday and have wonderful memories of the time we spent together :)

Have a fabulous 70th birthday Allison's Mom :) Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to You, Mom! (I know, I know, I'm still on the list, but I'm just practicing!!) Love the message written in yarn! Does she get to keep any of it?? (I'd let you keep it all... just saying!)
