Ok, so I just blogged about the journey of motherhood for me. Now it's time to brag about my Mommy.

My mom is one of the most amazing women I know. She is strong, determined, kind and caring.

She has given my a Godly heritage that I will pass on to my kids. She taught me to love Jesus by example. I can still see her in her room praying next to her bed. I can hear her singing worship songs as she cleans the house. I can see her Bible, all marked up. I can see her showing love and forgiveness towards others, even those who hurt her.

Being a mom myself now, I truly appreciate all she has done for me. I know I was a thousand times more ornery than my children are, so how she survived raising me is nothing less than a miracle.

I have just as many fun memories of my mom as I do serious ones. I thought I would list a few here.

Playing name that tune.

Hiking up Multnomah Falls with our friends, asking how was she and her friend were able to drag their big bottoms up the hill. (It's a wonder she didn't smack me for that one!)

Going on the roller coasters because Dad was too chicken to take us.

Mom's corny jokes.

Rending the bike cart at seaside.

Mom sledding with us in the back yard.

Happy Mother's Day, mom. I love you!!!

  1. You weren't that ornery! You were strong willed and busy, stubborn and determined, but you weren't rebellious or disrespectful. I am so grateful that I'm your mom.
