Happy Birthday to The Queen!!

Thirty-five years ago I was a cocky know-it-all-about-everything twenty year old clueless woman about to experience THE EVENT of my lifetime...the birth of Queen B.

Life changing. Awesome. Powerful.

The transformation of Beachy Mimi was immediate. I had never felt such an intense emotion as the bond of love I had for her.

I have messed up alot as a mother. Alot. But, she is still the best thing I have ever done; my greatest accomplishment.

Actually, the credit all goes to God but I like to pat myself on the back sometimes!!
(you know...for those teenage years)

So here, January 10, 2009, my baby is 35 which makes me OLD. I love you, sweetheart.

You are my favorite person.

Happy Day to you and yours!

Happy Birthday to both of you!

Queen B said...

Thanks, Mom. That was very sweet.

You are a great mother!!!

(and I was totally trying to let the big day slide by quietly...)

(and you could have left out my actual age...)

Happy Happy Day to Queen B!!
You both are wonderful Moms.
If I had a daughter, I would
want her to be the kind of
person that B is. Totally mean that! She is a blessing to all
that knows her. Beachy you had
a HUGE part of that!
