Happy Birthday Mom!!




Today is my Mother's 84th birthday! She loves barns and I decided instead of putting a picture of her on my blog that I would honor her with some of her favorite things...I remember driving up in the Apple country near her parents house when I was little and she always commented with such excitement.."Look kids there is another barn"!
She was born in Oklahoma and was raised her in Southern California. Mom has some great stories and I love when all the family comes together, I watch her and her eyes just twinkle with such joy at all her family gathered around her! Mom always made her famous fruitcake at Christmas...the smell was wonderful even though I didn't like the fruitcake, that wonderful scent of the yeast and candied fruit have always stayed with me. She has past down her cooking and baking skills to us....love the Tuna Roll-ups with Cheese sauce, Lime Jello Salad...my favorite meal to this day!!! Mom was frugal and always such a great steward to what the Lord has blessed her with! So today Mom, I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday, and May God strengthen you, guide your steps and bless you indeed!! I love you Momma!!!
Love always,
Mindy xoxo
