My mom is brave. She has endured many surgeries, a dog attack, the loss of her own mother, and so much more that I couldn't ever imagine myself being strong enough to handle.
My mom loves her family with every fiber of her being. She encourages my family to get along because she wants us all to be together. She will never leave us or give up hope.
My mom shows her love by baking me treats, cooking healthy meals, e-mailing me, calling me on the phone, coming to visit me, helping me move, bringing me souvenirs from her trips, and giving me hugs.
My mom believes in me. When I doubt whether I can accomplish something, I always remind myself of my mom's confidence in me. She always encourages me with sweet notes on important days.
My mom is always there. She attended all of my basketball games and track meets, she organized celebrations for both of my graduations, she took me to all of my doctor's appointments, she was beaming with pride when I received scholarships and awards as a student, she moved me into my first college dorm, and she is always thrilled to have "girl weekends" with me whenever I want.
My mom is fun. She has a wonderful sense of humor and a sarcastic wit. She is downright silly and loves to laugh.
How did you celebrate Mother's Day?
Since my mom is currently out-of-state on vacation, I celebrated Mother's day by doing something she would love! I went tubing on the river and ate at one of her favorite restaurants. I called her on the phone and enjoyed telling her about my day and hearing about her trip.
