GRACE, Happy Birthday.
Oh, how the years fly.
It seems like yesterday when I first held your tiny hands in mine.
I was totally enraptured by you and my life found a new purpose.
Ten years now since you gave me a title and a new name, MOM.
You are a blessing and a constant reminder of God’s all encompassing GRACE.
You have taught me patience and self control.
I can now boast of being an efficient manager (with time and money).
I have learned that it’s not always about me. In fact, it has never been about me.
In many ways, I was forced to give up many selfish tendencies, not that I am complaining.
I am a better person because of you.
May God grant us a long time together so that I may watch you grow to be the beautiful, intelligent and God-fearing woman I know you will be.
I hope to become your friend through the different seasons (in triumph and in failure, in joy and in sadness) that you will no doubt encounter in life.
I will not always agree with your decisions, but I promise that I will respect and support you in any way I can.
And I hope you know that you can count on me no matter what. After all, I am your greatest fan.
I love and cherish you today and always!
