my mom's high school senior picture
today is my mom's birthday. so this post is a hApPy BiRtHdAy shout-out to her.
being a mom myself, i have learned a lot about how truly great my mom is. everybody has the bestest mom ever. that's just how God is, He's cool like that.
my mom does everything for everybody. we have to make her do things for herself. her gift is to give and encourage and listen. she likes to see you smile.
now that i have my own children i realize how much i probably tore my mom up and drove her crazy as a kid. she probably worried herself to death about me. sorry, mom.
and i now realize that even when you do all that stuff that drives mom nuts, she (and only she, dads don't quite think like this) may want to just shake you silly but she looks at you and remembers your sweet-little-soft-baby-like-self and sighs because that's how she'll always see you. and she loves you silly instead.
me, as my sweet-little-soft-baby-like-self
thanks, mom. i love you so much.
