Last May 6 was my Mama’s 70th birthday …could have been, I mean. I thought of scrapping to give tribute to her. Credits to Studio Flergs and LorieM for the paper and embellishments I used.  Here was my FB post then…

Happy birthday MAMA!
I know, if you were only alive and with us today, you would have been so happy to celebrate your 70th year. I could have granted a great wish of yours or perhaps brought you to a place you’ve never been.

These will no longer happen, but in my heart, I know that you are in bliss! You are in a much happier place than in any place here on Earth and I could never surpass the greatest gift you have now – being with HIM. I LOVE YOU, MA! I am wishing on your behalf now, that somehow, you have never forgotten that, even if we’re no longer together. You know what? It makes me smile when I look at the mirror now and see our resemblance. I would not forget how we make fun and joke about our appearances when I was young and no matter how hard we pick flaws at each other – we end up agreeing we’re both petite and beautiful. There’s a lot more to reminisce Mama, and if it is possible there in heaven to get a free movie on your birthday, hope you’d pick to see our life together.

Remember the kidnapping attempt of a demented woman when I was 3? I am just sooooooo thankful & happy it didn’t succeed – I got to be with my remarkable MAMA. Again, just what I have told you years ago… I would never trade you! You are the BEST mother for me and your granddaughters. We LOVE you so much! Mwah!

And again, with all our hearts – Happy Mother’s Day too!

For me, as a Mother – you have got it all!
