happy birthday mother nature

Today is my mom's birthday.

She is abundantly generous, beautiful, faithful, kind, thoughtful, gracious, welcoming, tender and loving beyond belief.

This is to you, my friend and mom, Mrs. Hughes:
To another year of learning and growing, full of blessings, health and love.
