My Mom.

We have the best mom.
We really do.
Compassionate, caring, hard working, determined, beautiful, thoughtful, unique.
A few things my mom has taught me through the years:

When you lose someone close to you; keep going.  Her best friend passed away a few years ago.  My mom and I were together at the hospital into the late hours of the night and early morning.  The next morning, my mom woke up early and made my lunch for school, just like she did every single day.  We cried together before I left for school and she left for work.  But my mom taught me how to keep going; 
My mom has taught me strength.

My mom has taught me to give.  It's her way of life.

If someone's sick; be with them.  I got really sick when I was a sophomore in high school, and again at the beginning of this year.  When TL was out of town, my mom did every thing for me.  She worried, bought every type of food for me, did my laundry, and most importantly, spent time with me.  Her touch soothes me.  There is just something about my mom that makes me feel comforted.
My mom has taught me compassion.

My mom has taught me to love unconditionally.  She did this by always telling me she loved me, even when I made mistakes.

My mom has always told me real beauty is on the inside.

My mom has taught me to always work hard. She never stops.  She works full time as an executive assistant, a mom, a grandma, a wife.  There is hardly ever time for her.  She has worked at the same place for over 30 years - and she worked hard part time while we were growing up to make sure we always had what we need; the strange thing... we never really had babysitters.
My mom has taught me to value hard work.

My mom has taught me so many things through the years.  She is a really special woman.  She has always been there for me, no matter what.  My sisters and I are so lucky to have her.  
Mom, I love you so much.  

The beauty of my mom has rubbed off to another great mom; my sister, Kel.  She has done so well raising Ry Guy in his first year.  He is one lucky little guy to have a mom like her!!
Happy Mother's Day to Kel.  I love you.  You are an amazing mom, wife, sister, friend!
