Thinking Of My Mom On Her Birthday


Thinking of my mom today on her birthday. I love this picture of her in the snow, smiling. Young and happy. And I have posted this photo here before. 

I'm so very grateful to have had a wonderful mom. I think of her often, how much I love her, what a great help she always was to me. 

How unselfish she was when she helped me emigrate to the United States, so far away. I wasn't doing well in Stockholm and she knew I needed a change. The change became permanent, but she didn't mind. As long as I was happy. 

I think of how much fun we had when she visited me here and I visited her in Stockholm. 

I love you mom.


  1. Beautiful tribute to a good Mom. Hard to have you far away, but she did what you needed. That's lovely.

  2. Happy Birthday to your Mom, and hugs to you on her birthday. i love the photo also.. she looks so happy

  3. Happy Birthday to your Mom. She loved you so much to be able to part with you so you could seek your place in life.

  4. Your Mum gave you so much love, specially with the help to move, not an easy decision at any time, and to visit would have been so special for her. Happy Birthday to your Mum, I remember mine as I was born on my Mum's birthday in July. Inger, light a candle, have a wish, and have wonderful memories.

    1. I did light a candle, early while it was still dark. It's burning here still.
