For the past 4 years, Mama Hop's birthday has become "the forgotten birthday". It's a casualty of having a beautiful, charming, loveable little granddaughter named Josie enter the world a mere two days before her birthday, thus stealing her thunder. But Mama Hop doesn't mind. Even when Josie insisted on talking to Aunt Leanne when we called to wish Mama Hop a Happy Birthday this morning, Mama Hop didn't mind.
That's just the type of kind-hearted, maternal and loving person she is. But today it's important that she knows that we have not forgotten her. She is a source of strength and inspiration that has guided our family for (don't worry, Mom - I won't say how many) years.
Today, we celebrate Mama Hop!
Happy Birthday, Mom! We hope your special day is as wonderful as you are! We love you!
