Last Saturday we had a surprise birthday brunch to celebrate Mom’s birthday.  She and Dad were on their way home from Florida on her actual birthday so we decided to surprise her with a special celebration when she least expected it.  It was a fun time and yes, she was surprised!

We bought her a beautiful family pendant with all 10 of the grandkids birthstones in it but I didn’t get a good picture of it.  I’ll work on changing that soon.  The gift was perfectly timed too as earlier in the morning (before Mom even knew we had the cars packed with surprise birthday goodies) she shared about how for years and years as they struggled with infertility, she and dad questioned if they’d ever have children let alone grandchildren.  Fast forward to now and God has blessed them with 3 children and 10 grandchildren!  God is so good!

Happy birthday Mom!  What fun it was to celebrate with you!


  1. Yes HE is!
    Happy Bday to your mom. What a wonderful blessing she has with so many children in her life!

  2. Happy belated to your mom! I'm sure she just loved her gift!

  3. That is wonderful-the cake, the story, the blessings from God, all of it :-)


  4. It must be wonderful to have your Mom understand the PAIN of infertility. It doesn't necessarily vanish after one becomes a parent either. It surfaces in various hues of intensity and then vanishes as quickly as it appeared, unbidden.
    Your story inspires me. One day I hope to establish a support system for my little troop, like you have done so well.
