Happy Birthday, Mom!!


It is Mom/Grandma/Margaret/Maggie's birthday today!
Happy, Happy Birthday to the dear Mama of the Erbers, Etc!

We posted this birthday poem back in 2005, but with only one word change, it still is true today! We love you, Mom!

~~

To the matriarch of the Erber clan,
We join to give an applauding hand.

To you, mother, we wish to say,
Have a very happy day!

For all you've made our home to be,
For love poured on our family,

For all you are and all you do,
This happy birthday is for you.

Though three have flown our cozy nest,
Yet now there's more of us - not less,

And little babies to bring you joy,
(as we wonder again... girl or boy?!).

We all of us send love to you,
And birthday greetings send we, too.

Many more may God grant thee.
Years of love, and jubilee!

This simple poem was quickly writ,
But sincerity it lacks not a bit.

More heartfelt than our words can say:
We wish to you a Happy Birthday!
