"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Happy Birthday Mom!

One week ago, tomorrow, marked my mom's 60th birthday. Let me tell you...it was great! She had a great day at work with people making her feel special and that night, Adam and I threw her a party with his parents, my sister and Ken. My mom thought Adam and I were just going to take her out to dinner that night, but when the doorbell started ringing with people...we told her we were going to grill out and have a party at our house with everyone! Now, if you know my mom, you know that she is always thinking about other people and never about herself. My mom is the most greatful, un-selfish person I know and I greatly admire her for that! Since my mom does so much for other people, I wanted to make her 60th birthday something very special for her. So, Adam grilled chicken and we just had a fun time being with each other. She kept telling me that this was the best birthday she has ever had and she was so happy to spend it with us. I love my mom so much and it was the least I could do to make her feel special on her special day! I'll leave you with a few picutres of that night and encouragement to go out of your way today to make someone feel special!
