Happy 60th Birthday Moozie!

Happy Birthday Moozie!  I can’t believe you are 60-I guess this makes you a super senior citizen now!! 🙂 I hope you have a fabulous day and have many happy, healthy days ahead-you deserve it.  I am so blessed to have you as my Mom and can’t imagine not talking to you five times a day!  You have been such an example of a Godly, selfless woman and I hope that one day I can be the type of mother to my children that you have been to me.  You said I would like you when I went to college and you were right-and now I’m so glad that we are best friends!  Thanks for always helping me take my medicine and letting me crawl in on your side of the bed.
