Baby Mona

Who knew this little girl would grow up to be the most selfless, kindhearted person in the world… A woman so wise, she will not utter a single word if it’s not the right time and knows what battles to fight and which ones to let go of.

A woman of faith. She won’t stand to be defeated by trials and struggles because she believes in a God that has always taken over her battles and won.

A woman so humble, she’d rather be penniless than to have all the riches in the world with a heart filled with greed and arrogance. She’ll handle any position she’s put in with understanding and love.

Words will never be enough to express the amount of love I have for my mom. They’re just a tool used to show much I appreciate her.

My mom is my rock. My world doesn’t exist if she’s not a part of it. It almost terrifies me how attached I am to her, because if I were to ever lose her, I’d lose myself too. But today it’s not about that.

Quite the opposite actually. Today I get to celebrate another year that God has blessed my mother with. Another year of laughter, of smiles, of adventures, of memories, of intense love as she likes to call it.

She truly is my grandmother reincarnated and funny enough, she was named after her. I was blessed with two Grace’s.

Happy birthday to my best friend, my confidant, my rock, my other half, my pillar and the one who keeps me going.

You are truly one of a kind. I love you, mama ❤
