Today, my mom turns another year older (due to the wishes of some involved parties I cannot disclose her age)! Suffice it to say that she is still really young (: Anyway, I thought I’d write a quick post to let everyone know how much I love her and am grateful for all she has done and continues to do. She is truly an amazing woman with a heart for God and heart for others. She makes jokes that aren’t funny and laughs at them. She falls asleep and has to call it a night for every movie we watch. She loves to go to the library almost as much as I do. She bakes sweets out of the blue. She lets me wear her clothes. And when I tell her that I really want a smoothie, she comes back from picking up Drew and hands one to me. Of course, she also works hard, cooks, cleans, chauffeurs, nurses, and counsels, but the previous qualities are just some things that make her my mom.
I haven’t honored and cherished her nearly enough, but I love her. And I hope that she knows it.
