A Birthday Video for Ma

Tomorrow is Vera’s birthday. I call Vera “Ma” because she’s like a mother to me, in case you’re wondering. The video below is my attempt at animation. This is supposed to be funny, so I hope you find it that way. My voice gets a little distorted in the beginning so that makes it even more humorous, and the talking is a little slow. But, anyway…

This is my birthday gift to Vera, but I thought I would share it with everyone. Enjoy.

  1. Mel, Thank you so very much, how thoughtful, no one has ever done that for me before, you are the first!!! I love you and even teared up a bit! Love you, Ma

    I enjoyed it and teared up a bit, too! Happy Birthday, Vera! Our loss (having our kids close by) will be your gain as you partner together.

    You are so talented…and I love how God is going to use all of it full time for His glory. I miss you already…but I’m smiling at knowing that someday we all will be united with those we love again.

    Much love,
