Today is a special day. It is my mom's birthday. Iva Ruth is one classy lady. She loves pretty things and always thinks of others before herself. I can remember one year when my daughter was a toddler and it was my mom's birthday, instead of her spending her birthday money on herself, she bought my daughter a beautiful coat with a white fluffy muff. She was always famous for her Sunday roast dinners. You could smell it cooking for a mile. I wanted to honor her today because I love her so much. She is out of town at my sister's house in Louisiana spending some time there. Mom, I know that you will probably be reading this and I wanted to say, have a wonderful Birthday. I love you!
