My Mar

You all see where I get my good looks now. I'm a lucky, lucky girl! (Since she didn't post a picture of herself wearing the fabulous glasses I thought it fair that I do it for her). I absolutely love this woman. I have read all the posts about what mother's want for Mother's Day and I'll have to admit I still don't know what to get mine. I don't mean to brag, but once I got out of my toddler years I was pretty much a model daughter. Seriously, you can ask just about anyone. That's not to say I never got into trouble, but I just never had a rebellious phase that put gray hair on either of my parents' heads. That said, I already gave the gift of being a good child. I think next on her list is grandchildren, but anyone who has read my blog knows that that ain't going to happen anytime soon.

My mom is pretty darn amazing. She has great style and a great sense of humor. She knows exactly who she is, where she came from, and where she is going. She raised 4 girls and has the patience of Job (one bathroom and all of us are within 5 years of age). She still does our laundry when no one (Larry) is looking, sneaks money into our purses just because, and loves to just hang out and talk.

I think the best thing about my mom is how non-judgemental she is towards her children/family. Everyone has their moments, and I know she's not perfect, but she doesn't stop loving us because we made a bad, or many bad, decision(s). She feels no need to point out the accomplishments of one of her daughters, or family members, to make another one (or herself) feel better or worse, but loves them unconditionally. I think it's safe to say, I haven't inherited that quality, or at least perfected it, yet.

Thank you mom for my good looks, creativity, and for being my friend. I lover you!!!

Well thank you Katie, that was a very nice thing to write about me. When ever I am feeling down about myself, I look at the four of you,I must have done something right to have the sweet daughters I do. And....yes,I must say that you were never the one who I lost sleep over. I love you and want you to know how proud I am of you. Thank you for the good example you set for all of us.
