Many Happy Returns of the Day!

Today has never been a day that has stood out to me as the occasion on which a little groundhog decides how much more winter there is; my whole life, today has stood out to me as the birthday of a most singular lady. 
When I was a little girl, we could say anything and my mom would find a way to make it into a song, which she would quite happily sing at us no matter where we were, (which I definitely do to my kids.) I didn’t believe she slept because I never actually saw her do it (she was always up before us, and in bed way after us,) and she truly was/is the center of our family universe. 
As an adult I realize my mommy is a vibrant, creative, amazing mom and Nana, who is a notorious baby nibbler, and and all around talented woman and friend. Every time my mom comes to my house we end up making something out of stained glass (she is the glass grinder on the team,) helping us lay tile or paint in a bathroom, or running outside to check my mail in the rain mid project………….
(Sorry mom!)




Happy Birthday Mom, you are the classiest lady I have ever met, and I am glad I am tuning into you as I grow up!

    What a great birthday post! I know your mom is extremely impressed with the fine woman her little girl has become…your efforts to carry the Craft/Sewing torch forward into the next generation is a wonderful honor to her as well.

    Thank you my darlings!! You just made my birthday into the most special day ever!!! I love how you took the ball and ran!!! You have by far surpassed anything I may have originally taught you – but my claim to fame is that I “sparked” the interest!!! I am so proud of the way you have been so dedicated to your family, persevered with your studies, and still been able to excell at your many interests and talents. You have GREAT CHILDREN, and a MOST EXCELLENT husband whom I love to bits!! – and they have also supported you all the way as you mesh finishing your degree (brilliantly, I might add), being a superb wife, and an incredible mother!! I love you, Cath! So glad that I get to share my birthday week with you!! Happy Birthday for Monday!!!!
