Happy Birthday Ma!!


Happy Birthday to my Mom today! Yep, that's her and I from when I was a little girl. Both of us smiling big and bright just like folks would do in one of those old Woolworth's photo booths. You can recognize the pic from my avatar to the right there.

As you can see from the pic below Ma has hardly changed at all, though now I'm the taller one. She's still gorgeous and fabulous and still the same bit of unpredictability she was back then. From her Psalm 23 tattoo, you never know what's in store with my mom. Not what dress she'll be wearing or what hair color will go with it. But that's the charm of Ms. Kay!

This weekend Ma staged a girl's night out at Roseland ballroom to celebrate her birthday. And when I say staged, I mean staged (guess I get a bit of my control tendencies from her). We had a great time dancing the night away to songs from the 50's to the 70's. All of us wearing tiara's that Ma supplied so folks in the club kept saying Happy Birthday to all of us.



It was a great night and so nice of her to share her birthday joy with all of us.




Happy Birthday Ma!!

We Love you!
DD, DS, DH and Jack

and

I Love You too!
Your daughter,
Kwana
