To the woman who..
always models the virtues of patience, kindness, and faithfulness
taught me that hot food needs to be piping hot
salts everything to an extreme
taught me to love children and babies as much as she does
sang to me every day as a little girl
thinks I'm funny
gets more nervous than I do every time I perform
instilled a love of books in me
is always the first to apologize
taught me how to do a cartwheel (left-handed like her)
supported my extensive and exhaustive college search
cried when my doctor said my ACL was torn
is the epitome of Proverbs 31 woman
and so much more!
I only hope I can be half as incredible a mom to my children as you have been to me. Happy birthday, Mama! I love you.
