For my Mom on Mothers Day

I really love my Mommy.

She was the first person I ever met and ever loved.

She has always held me close and kept me safe.

And warm and cozy.

She made every single birthday special.

She has always been by my side to cheer me on.

She was my coach.

And she has always been so young and fun. And many people do not know this, but she is also a magic genie.

She has even rocked many awesome hairstyles with me.

My mom is beautiful, inside and out. I've always thought she has a special glow.

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

(And I want to thank my Dad for taking the time to scan lots of pictures from my childhood to share with you. I treasure these pictures!)
