Happy Birthday Jo-Mama!

A post from Kelli–

Jo has been HACKED!!!!

But in the best way possible of course!  And for a wonderful reason!  Today is my Momma’s birthday!

The past few years have been a bit rough.  Mom always tells us that in order to know how great the good things are, you have to go through some of the bad spots too!  I can’t really think of a better lesson to have learned over the past few years.

As a family we’ve been challenged and we’ve celebrated and through all of the lows, mom has been there to keep us pushing forward, offering advice, and just listening to us cry or complain.  She’s also been one of the first ones to congratulate us, cheer us on, and tell us she’s proud of us for a job well done.  She’s the one that knows I’ve been having a bad week before I even realize it!  And she’s the one to make me do the things that I know I need to do, but don’t want to.  She’s always willing to lend a listening ear and a helping hand.

And in the in-between times, she’s been there to keep us going, encourage us, and have the hard talks with us.  All in all, I couldn’t ask for a better friend, business partner or mom!

I’ve seen the memes floating around Facebook before that talk about how you’d be happy if you could be half the mom your mom was to you.  Me?  I’d be thrilled if I could be a fraction of a percent of the mom that my mom is!  She is literally a saint!

So make sure to send her some birthday wishes!  She surely deserves them!

    Happy Birthday, Jo. Hope you had a good day. I enjoy your blog and don’t know how you get done all you do and even manage to blog about it all. Do you know of someone who makes soft toys and could use some batting scraps for stuffing?
