Mama. Such a sweet-sounding, emotion-filled word that brings to mind a sense of comfort ... and security ... and tender, loving care.
My mama's 87th birthday is today, and, although we can't be with her today, my husband and I drove over to West Monroe, Louisiana, to see her and my dad over the weekend. They were expecting just the two of us for lunch Saturday, but we brought along an early birthday present for her -- a surprise visit from our daughter Whitney and grandchildren Avery Grace and Maddox. I wish I could have captured a picture of the pure joy and happiness on both their faces as we opened the car doors and they saw their special visitors. She said it was the best birthday present she had ever had ... and it was the most fun birthday present we've ever given her!
