Momma_ Mawmaw_ friend

There's this person in my life that has been such a blessing_
such a God send_ a truly genuine person ...she's my mother in law.
She is momma to my husband,
she is Mawmaw to my kids, and she is friend to me.

She is a giver of her time_ her talent_ and she does so so freely.
I continue to learn so much just from watching her model amazing hospitality,
her loving people unconditionally, and her love for Jesus.
And some things I've learned even as they go unspoken_
the knowing how she prays for us fervently_
how she believes, wants, & speaks the best of us and others.

She's a pastor's wife and being in ministry we've only had the privilege
of living by each other for brief times in life. But after being with her & leaving_
your always left wanting more_ more time to be together_
more time to love on & laugh with each other.
If we could...we would want to go where she goes_ be where she is...

Today and every day I'm so thankful for her_
she just makes you want to be a better wife, a better mom, a better friend.
So since we can't be with you in MS. today.... we just want to say
Happy Birthday Mrs. Dianne_ Happy birthday Momma_
Happy Birthday Mawmaw _ we love you.

Heather :)

I can not even begin to imagine the blessing that it must be to have her as mother, mother in law, and mawmaw. Constant fellowship with Ms changing. I wish she was reading this...I know she isnt, but Happy Birthday, Ms Dianne. I love you SOOOOO Much!
