Happy Mother's Day

To Mom:
Happy Mother's Day to you! 

You always said that all you wanted to be was a mom.  What a noble and selfless goal to have.  The fact that your main purpose was to give to others is truly incredible.

As one of your three goals - I thank you.

Thank you for teaching me how to sew.
Thank you for teaching me how to cook.
Thank you for teaching me how to whistle really loudly with my fingers.
Thank you for teaching me please and thank you.
Thank you for teaching me manners.
Thank you for making me sit in church every week teaching me discipline.
Thank you for teaching me how to sit down and have a conversation at dinner.

Not only did you teach me this stuff, but you also showed me the example by doing all these things yourself.  These and so much more.  You taught us to live, to learn, to love and to care.  People say that these are not things that you can teach someone, but I think that we learned these things by watching you and following your good example.

Thank you for being your wonderful, fabulous you Mom.  You have always been supportive in the good times and especially the hard times.  I want to always be there for you too.  Even now that I am an old married lady and we are friends and can laugh all the time, I know I can rely on you and you are my still and always will be my mom.

I wish everyone had an "Angel" in their life.

This made me teary reading it, what a wonderful woman Angel must be to have nurtured her girl to be the wonderful woman you are!

I hope that one day my girls will write something even remotely as special as this about me.

You are so fortunate to have a great role model, and she is lucky to have a loving daughter like you!
