My mom

March 18th was my mom's birthday. And while I did not forget her birthday, I did fail to write about her.  So many words wrapped up in that tiny woman lol...dependable, loyal, faithful, gracious, godly...the list could just go on. I love my mom so much. Sometimes I think she fails to see how much. And I guess that's my fault. She has always been the greatest example of a wife and mother to me and my sister and now to her granddaughters. I don't ever remember her complaining when I was growing up. I never fully realized the sacrifices she made for us until I was grown and had kids of my own. We were talking the other day about when she used to make mine and Joy's clothes. People sew today because they enjoy it. Mom did it because she had to and I admire and appreciate that. I also am so very thankful that my mom stayed home with us and did not go to rare these days.  She is just such a great woman and lady. I am brought to tears by the fact that God let her be MY mom.

She is truly a Godly example. I am so happy that she has been such an influence in my daughter's life. You do have a wonderful mother.
