Happy Mother's Day, Mama!!!


I am so blessed to have a beautiful, loving, fun, Christian, giving, all-around wonderful Mama!! It has not been easy living so far from my Mama and Papa. In fact, we went FOUR months without seeing them!! A phone call is just not the same. My mother is one of the best bridge players in Raleigh, NC. She makes the best Sunday dinners in the whole world. Just like her Mama, she cooks dish after wonderful dish and we indulge ourselves happily when she does. She is very funny. How many mamas do you know that will shock a whole elite tour group in Miami by dressing in an all-white suit with a Donatella Versace long blonde wig? No one even knew who this stranger was when she entered the bus! Mama has such a great sense of humor. When we are together, we laugh and laugh and laugh. She has so many friends and has wonderful parties. She has always made me be a better person and sacrificed much for my behalf. Yet, she always communicated to me that all I had to do was my best, and if my best produced a C or D, that was okay. My competitive personality needed to hear that. I am very hard on myself and needed to know it's OKAY not to be perfect. Mama, I am thankful for you & I love you so much!! I feel blessed to be able to celebrate this day with you & hope we can celebrate together for many, many more years!!! I LOVE YOU.

You mother is so beautiful inside and out, just like you! I hope you also had a wonderful day today!

I thought of you this evening when I ran into all these girls that are working at Greystone this summer. They are all going up on June 2nd for training and then June, Main and August. Are any of your girls going this summer??

Oh, Junior Camp! I so wish I was able to help with that this summer! You must promise to go into the back office and say hello do Di for me and also give Jimdaddy a hug from me!
I cannot wait for my big trip either. I am so blessed to have a job that has taken me to the UK for the past three years. I just adore it! The parents are not meeting me, but as soon as I finish up I head to India to see them for eleven days!

What a beautiful tribute from a loving daughter to her wonderful mother.....I'm sure she would agree that your words were/are the best gift she could ever receive this Mother's Day! Thank you for sharing them. I am honored to know both of you! With love, Linda
