Yia-Yia's Birthday!!

We celebrated my mother's birthday this weekend, and as a tribute to her the boys and I made this fun video for her. The kids call her Yia-Yia (pronounced Ya-Ya) which is greek for Grandma and the song in this video seemed so fitting.

I am so blessed to have such an incredible mother, who has always been there for me and continues to be just a phone call away whenever I need her. She is an amazing Yia-Yia and loves our children immensely.

Now that I am a mother and have a whole new perspective on life and love, I also have a new glimpse of my own mothers extraordinary love. When I watch her loving my children, I get to see how she was with me when I was a small child. It's also fun to watch the dynamics of grandparents. Johnny and I are so blessed to have both sets of our parents so involved in our lives. Our kids love spending time at each of their homes and creating special memories with all of them.

Mom, I couldn't have asked for a better mother and best friend. Thank-you for your advice, love, sacrifices and constant help. Thank-you for always showing me the example of what it means to be a beautiful woman both inside and out, by your commitment to always being the very best that you can be. I've grown up watching you lay down your life for others, always looking for the best in life's situations, and never settling for mediocrity. You have a beautiful faith, a trusting heart and positive attitude and you always seem to be making a difference in the lives of others. In my eyes, you are a superhero, and I love you more than you could know.

Happy Birthday Yia-Yia!!!

  1. I know this woman and she is by far the most amazing person to have crossed my path. She has amazing daughters, especially the youngest one, who not only looks like her, but also has the same amazing heart! Love them both so much! Happy Birthday Linda! Chris
