She has always held me close and kept me safe.
She made every single birthday special.
And she is truly one of my best friends. I can talk to her about anything. She is always there for me. And we have lots of fun together.
My mom is an amazing grandma to my girls. . .
And to our new son. . .they each have a special bond with her. They love her dearly.
I honestly think I have the best mom in the whole world! I'm so grateful to Heavenly Father for choosing her to be mine forever. I couldn't have asked for a better mother. She has every quality a mother should have and I hope I can become as wonderful a mother as she was. She truly made our house a home, a place I felt happy and warm. I remember coming home from school so excited to just walk through the door and get that feeling back. The Spirit was there when she was there. I am forever grateful for all she has done for me. Now that I'm a mother, I understand more of the sacrifices and work that motherhood requires. But most of all, I understand more of the love she has for me as I love my children and watch them grow. I want them to be happy and be the best they can be and I know firsthand thats what my mom wants for me. And I am so happy. My life is everything I wanted it to be. And I owe it to my angel mother.
Happy Mother's Day Mom. I Love You. XOXO
