My Mom

This is my cute mom, Marie.  We celebrated her birthday this past Sunday and I can only hope that she has 40 more birthdays in her!  My mom, like most peoples moms, is very special to me.  We are buddies and I love that. I love that I can tease my mom.

I am the youngest in my family and when I was in high school it was usually me and mom at home together.  My Dad was at work and all my other siblings were married or in college which means that I got mom all to myself!  I loved it!  I was her little errand runner and we also got lot of great opportunities to talk that we otherwise might not have.

My mom taught me so many things.  I got my love of making, creating and beautifying things from her.  She is the one that taught me how to cook and to sew and without her I think I would have a very different job!  My mom is the driving force in my life and was always positive and upbeat. She is a calm and happy woman who I think definitely follows the motto 'come what may, and love it'.

I only hope that one day I can as good of a mother as she has been to me and all of my family.  I love you Mom!!  You're the best!

Great post. I didn't know that you were the youngest in your family.

Happy Birthday to your Mom!

I have always admired your mom (my aunt as well) As long as I can remember she is always smiling and fun to talk to. =0)
