One Fine Day...

I appreciate....
Your kindness and your chicken salad.
Your grace and your scotcharoos.
Your compassion and your potato salad.
Your humility and your Buckeyes.

You are a devoted and loving Grandmother. A still-smittened wife. A loyal and caring daughter-in-law.
And a mother to Kings and Queens.



On this day, I make a Birthday wish, for you:
I wish for more of You. For you to unlock your hidden sense of humour. To read more books and plant more flowers. I wish for you to remember yourself. Take more walks. Enjoy being a sister. Couch snuggle your husband. Buy more new curtains! Laugh, Dance and Play.. much, much more.
Your greatest flaw, is the neglect of your own Joy.
I delight in every opportunity, I meet the Happy and Carefree lady inside of you. You helped light up, our Thanksgiving. It is no Wonder, Grandpa will wait hours, just to share his meal with you.
Happy Birthday, to my favorite M.I.L.
Myself and nearly Fourteen, sweet little voices, wish you many... many more.
