Happy Birthday mom. Today is my Mom's birthday. I just wanted to take a moment and write some of my thoughts about her. It is hard for me to know where to start so i will start with a poem I wrote for her about 10 years ago. It is cheesy but that is what you get from me.
There are so many things I could add to that list. She is the one I call when I have good news or bad. When I need applause or an answer. There are not many people I know that are up to the task of raising 8 kids but my mom did it and she did it well. I hope I can be as good a mom to my kids as she was to me. She never missed a performance of mine. Every night every assembly every silly in class performance she was there cheering me on. During rehearsal she would bring me food. She would stay up late at night to chat and to comfort us. She was and is one of my best friends. I was one of the few kids in high school he had a friendship with their mother. I was a hard kid to raise but my mom was up for the fight. When she didn't have an answer she would go to the Lord and she helped teach us to do the same. There was many a time that she would tell me to pray and to make my own descission. Even now she is there for me guiding the way. What would I do wiothout my mom. She is one of the most giving poeple I know. Mom I love you. Thanks for making me feel important and knowing how to put up with me. Thanks for teaching me the gospel and loving me. My mom was loved by all my friends and if she wasn' starting snowball/water fights you can bet she was finishing them. I love you mom, Happy Birthday.
I think it would be great if anyone out there wanted to leave comments for my mom to do that here at my site since she doesn't have her own and since she will read this she will know to check them.
