Today is your Birthday Mom...

I'm sending you a pure, sweet rose,
Gathered in the early morn,
This rose you planted in my heart,
The day that I was born.

In kindly, loving thoughts of you,
And with the faith you still impart,
The rose I give to you today,
Is the love that's in my heart.

"Happy Birthday"

"I love and miss you"

We don't realize how much we love them until they are gone. Happy Birthday to your mother. I read several of your previous post and truly enjoyed them. I live in SC and used to have some of these banana trees. We loved them but they were a pain when the weather turned cold. We had to dig each up and place under the house until spring. I guess in Florida you don't have to do that, right?

The rose, the love, the faith - what a loving legacy from your beloved mother.
