Why I Love My Mom

I love this lady! This is a picture of me and my mom on mother's day. Why do I love her? Well...
1. She's my mom
2. She's resilient - she's overcome a lot from her childhood, with the loss of her own mother at age 10, taking care of her family, becoming an awesome mom to three girls, surviving three septic episodes with her kidneys, and fighting with all she's had to raise 3 girls, who sometimes rebelled, to grow into decent ladies.
3. She's FUN! Ask anyone, she's the life of the party, she lights up a room with her presence, she's a blast to be with. You will always laugh around my mom, and there's never a dull moment. She always looks for the best in all situations, in people, etc.
4. She's a real as real can get. Take it or leave it. She has compassion for the hurting, and she'll tell you like it is when you ask her opinion. She loves hard - with all her might and she won't stand for anyone she loves being hurt!
5. She stands for what she believes in. She's a strong christian woman and stands firm when tested and tried. Her values and morals don't waver. And...luckily she's passed this on to all of us.
We are blessed to have you as our mom, love you!!!!!
