Hey…wasn’t it your Birthday?

I’m not sure how many of you know my mom, but if you do, you’ll agree she’s pretty great.  I believe I’ve called her ‘my favorite person in the world’ more than once.

Well, she had a birthday on November 13th and while I did mail her a gift, I didn’t mention her day here on the blog.  This was mostly due to the fact that I hardly blogged at all in the month of November, but it was also because I couldn’t think of a way to say what she means to us all.

Then it came to me yesterday.

Several years ago, either for Mother’s Day, Christmas, or her Birthday, I gave her a print from one of our favorite artists.

There is no one who comes here that does not know this is a true map of the world, with you there in the center, making home for us all.  -Brian Andreas

I always thought it applied to our house in Ada, where it hangs.  What I realized after hosting both Jon and my family for Thanksgiving away from home, high up in the mountains, is that it actually applies to wherever she goes.  She makes a home for us all.

Happy belated birthday mom.
