Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom! 
How she looked when I was born : )
Thanks for paying for braces (the first time around! haha), letting me ride a motorcycle (even a small one..) (..and a big one), playing games with us, for all the times you said no (it really did make me want it more), stopping the girl fight (that embarrassed me), going to Branson on my birthday so many times, letting me tape balloons to my wall, letting me go to New York, taking me to a dermatologist, making me tuck my shirt in, staying on top of my homework and grades to help me get a scholarship, getting me a puppy, babysitting my dog (and kids), and for showing me how to give.  
Should I go on?
Making dinner every night, showing me how to mow the yard, making desserts, letting me watch Scooby Doo, Dukes of Hazzard, Love Boat, and Fantasy Island.  Making me laugh when you rode up the tree on the Hodaka motorcycle (and turned it over), taking me to the hospital when I broke my ankle on Jody's bike, letting me have friends come over, letting us hang awful crepe paper streamers all over, making me sweet tea, bargaining with me over Mother's day for both of us.  Getting hamburgers at the cafe, making chocolate gravy, walking me through a death, and funerals, and driving fast to my house to watch Clay after my water broke with Mary Claire, coming to Rogers after I totaled my car.
Should I go on?
For planting a garden, for letting it all grow over.  For planting hyacinth bulbs that still come back.  For flying kites with us, sharing your car when I started working, buying me a Holly Hobbie dollhouse, for all my Strawberry Shortcakes, moving my furniture when I've moved, being willing to give me your new purse, getting Mary Claire a sewing machine, getting Ethan a machete (heehee), for my birthday cakes, for my birth day.
I love you, and I appreciate you, Mom.  : )  I'll see you later for playing in the park!  xoxox

OH MY...Fantasy Island...The LOVE Boat, Dukes Of Hazard...Those were my favs! And I was a Strawberry Shortcake Girl. My sis was into Holly Hobbie.

Your mom sounds amazing.

Happy Mother's Day to you and her.

Awwww sweet daughter you amaze me!  Thank you for your sweet words.  You absolutely ROCK!!  You have taught me much more than I could ever teach you!  

I had actually forgotten about hamburgers from the cafe, but driving the motorcycle up the tree, I will never forget.  lol. 

You are precious, darling, loving, giving and are filled with peace love and charity and a heart of gold!

1 Corinthians 13
13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.  KJV
