To My Mom

My mom is amazing. She taught me how to cook, how to sew, how to be patient (still working on that one). I learned that its okay to watch "White Christmas" in the middle of July because it makes you happy, that there should always be chocolate somewhere in the house, and that cooking can be therapeutic.

My mom is my best friend. She is the person I call when I have a question about a sewing project, a recipe or when I just need to vent. She also has a sneaky way of calling me right when I need it most. Its a comfort to know that even though we are miles apart, she is never more than a speed dial away.

I love my mom. I love the way that she loves my kids. She loves them unconditionally. She doesn't scold or loose her patience when I know I surely would, and she is always ready to listen to their stories or rock them when they are sad. Nana's house is a special place to them. At Nana's they make cookies, do art projects, help in the garden and take rides on the tractor. These are the memories I am so happy my kids are making.

Mom, I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day. Thank you for being you!
