Happy Mother's Day!I haven't always told you but you have been and will always be a great mom. You are the mom that made my clothes for Barbie. You are the one that helped me learn to sew in order to get my Girl Scout merit badge. You are the mom who screamed when Scott brought home the snakes and when you slipped on the ice protecting Scott all the way! You are the mom who threw the best birthday parties. You held us together when Dad was gone to Vietnam and even oversaw the building of our house.
Mom, you are the one that went back to school and earned two Nursing Degrees. All those years of patching us up paid off.
You taught me and Cindy about dressing and make-up (mine didn't stick, but Cindy's did!) You taught me good manners, to respect those around me, to say "Yes Sir, No Sir, Thank you and Please." You taught us to sew, cook, decorate cakes and put up our veggies we grew in the garden.
You put together my wedding and cried the day Dad gave me away. You were there when all my children were born and you loved them unconditionally. When we moved to Tennessee you came to stay with us, encourage us and help the children to know their Grandma. You came to all three of my college graduations and surprised me greatly on the last one. I loved it.
Mom, you helped me through those hard times and often loved me despite myself. Our children always had the best because of you. You're love of your great grandchildren is overwhelmingly evident. Giggie is the hit of Hannah and Amber.
Mom you are beautiful inside and out. Hold your head up with pride because YOU did a GREAT job. Even though I say so myself!
Mom, I love you and wish you the best this day.
