Happy Mother's Day!!

For all of you who consider yourself a mother, I hope you have a great Mother's Day!
And to my mom...well, there are a lot of reasons why I think Mother's Day is an easy out for those people who do not appreciate or show their mothers they appreciate them every day. (Even if it is in small little ways). I don't need a holiday to help me remember how important my mom is to me, or how much I love her. So Mom, here it is... I love you for the help on all my huge History reports, for the homemade lunches, (no honey, please) , for your faith in me, for helping me hang up all my posters for office in middle school, even if we were being sabotaged by my opponent, for understanding why my socks had to be just perfect before I could put on shoes, for Chocolate Chip cookies...mmm!, for helping me to become independent, for great birthday parties and homemade b-day cakes, for cheering from the sidelines while I marched by awkwardly playing the trumpet or french horn, for putting up with my grouchiness when I had stayed up all night long doing homework, for stalling dad when you knew I had to have my hair look just right before I could leave the house, for teaching me to be clean and organized...although I think I may be a little OCD :), for being a wonderful example of how a mother should be selfless, for sending me care packages at college, for giving me so many opportunities. Most importantly, thank you for being you! I LOVE YOU MOM! Happy Mother's Day...every day!

Amy- I just read your Mother's Day things. I am so proud of you and who you have become. Thank you so much for the sweet things that you said. That made my night, day, week!!!! That is what I call pay day. I have always enjoyed being Mommy!! And when your grown child says things like that, it sure makes it worth everything.It makes it worth 21 hours of labor and sleepless nights, although at three weeks old you were already sleeping through the night. What a precious baby you were and now a precious and special daughter you are now. Thank you for being my daughter. I love you so much!! Love you, your Mother. xoxoxo
