And she's amazing.
She has always been one of my best friends. I never went through a phase where I thought she was uncool or I didn't want her around. On the contrary, I had friends that wanted to come to my house because they loved my mom too.
She's the most selfless person I know (almost to a fault). She has always put everyone else's needs ahead of her own. She has a wonderful, giving, and loving heart.
She gave birth to me...without an epidural! Of course she had to leave the room when my epidural didn't work with Skylar, but that's a whole other post. She did manage to be in the room when Bailey was born. (and arrived by plane less than 12 hours after Reagan was born).
She actually picked out Bailey's name.
She works hard at whatever she does and does it right the first time. She's a peacemaker and doesn't raise her voice (Clearly, I still have much to learn from her).
She's crazy funny! When she and her sister get together, my sides literally hurt from laughing so much.
She loves to give hugs.
She takes my kids to Disneyland!
She loves her family and God with all her heart.
She's the only woman I know that can come through a nervous breakdown, a brain aneurysm, a stroke, and a TIA (all within a couple years), and come out on the other side with even more beauty, more patience, more grace, and more faith.
I can talk to her multiple times a day and we still do not run out of things to talk about (something our husbands will never understand).
She genuinely loves her grandkids! (and being a grandma).
She has always been my biggest fan!
I'm blessed because she's mine.
Happy Mother's Day Mom! I love you to the moon and back!
