Happy Birthday Mom!
I know many of you have wonderful moms.
But how many of you have a wonderful, FUN, crazy, willing to try
almost anything once moms?
My mom is __0 years old today! She is the kind of mom I strive to be. Always supportive, ready to help, very giving to everyone, and always ready to have fun. Whenever we would go visit our extended family in Louisiana, it was like a celebrity was coming to town. Everyone wanted to see Charline!!!!!
The rest of us were just an entourage to her popularity...
I'm really not kidding!
Same is true in our town. Everyone at church knows her, and that's not easy considering our church is REALLY big. She helps with the Military support group and events, decorates for the Pastor dinners, is an Encourager, helps put on women's events, and that's just what she's been up to lately. Let me tell you, her talent knows no bounds.
Oh... Did I mention she is a world traveler? She and my dad have been on many mission trips... Africa, Taiwan, Peru, etc. (mom, please leave a comment with the number of countries you've visited). She is also an absolute beauty, AND a party planner extraordinaire! Oh... did I mention she's an artist, and she's writing a BOOK?
It's all true!
So Happy Birthday Mom!
Here's a few fun photos. My mom's only flaw is she's photo-aphobic, so there were not a ton of pics I could choose from. Plus, I'm only using photos that are on my computer. I wish I had more!
And I know Charline would want me to put this disclaimer...
"Remember friends, photos online add at least 20 lbs."
So indulge me while I take us all on a walk down memory lane. These fun times do not even scratch the surface of all the good times she's had in her life... so far!
Fair Park High School drill-team practice.
Marching in Shreveport, LA.
A party she threw for my daughter's wedding.
More of that party...
A girl's trip to New Orleans. I'm sure it was her idea that we wear boas out to brunch at the Court of Two Sister's restaurant!
We got Business Class on the way to Japan. Who were we to turn down FREE champagne???
A charity event... notice the background... SHE decorated it, and lots more!
A few birthdays ago... QUEEN!
So mom, if you ever wondered... I LOVE YOU and I THINK YOU'RE WONDERFUL!
