Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Woman

Everyday Insanity has been a little quieter than usual for the last few weeks - and there will be a post about that in the very near future!  But today we need to stop and celebrate.  It is Cindy's Birthday!!!  If you know Cindy in real life you know how very kind and thoughtful she is.  If you are lucky enough to live near her - chances are she has stopped by your house with a homemade treat - packaged just right!  And if you don't live near enough for a treat drop off you may have been the lucky recipient of one of her fabulous care packages.

Cindy is not only my Mom, but one of my best friends.  I could (and do) spend hours with her and it never seems to be quite enough!  I live 3 hours away and visit as often as I can.  Being in her home always makes me happy - and I always leave wanting to be a better person.  She is a wonderful, wise mother and has an endless supply of parenting advice.  She has a genuine love for learning and is always reading - often several things at once!  She is creative and industrious and does hard things with class and style. Her grandchildren adore her and she adores them!

I could go on, and on, and on about her fabulous qualities.  They truly are many!  I'm grateful every day that she is my mother and I hope to be just like her when I grow up!!  I wish I was with her today - but I have no doubt she will be well taken care of by my dad.  We all quite adore her!

Happy Birthday Mom - I love you to the moon and back! If I was in town I'd make you a delicious batch of Black Forest Brownies!

My sister, Amber, was in town for a few days last week and took fabulous photos of us all!  Go "like" her page, Amber Linderman Photography, on Facebook!

Happy birthday to one of my favorite ladies in the world! I have fond memories of coming to your house to do laundry and make treats with your ingredients because we were poor college students;) I hope you had a fantastic day, complete with a nap, some crafting and delicious food to boot.
