my mom...

Today I get to wish a very happy and blessed birthday to my sweet mother!!!!
She is one of the most giving and caring people that I know.
...and anyone who knows her would agree.

She is an incredible wife and mother, and I always knew that.
But to see her now with her grandchildren is the most amazing thing.
She takes the name "Memaw"from my own Memaw.
And my girls LOVE their Memaw. :)

a few things you should know about my mom:
She gives more than she has.
She puts others above herself.
She makes meals for others all the time. good meals too.
She and my dad gave my brother and I the amazing gift of adoption.
She is a very loyal friend and sister.
She is an incredible teacher to her preschool class of crazy 3 year olds.
And on that note, as you can imagine, she has amazing patience.
She is a wonderful caregiver.
She is always looking for ways to help those around her.
She taught me about Jesus and about the love I could find in Him.
She is a wonderful mother-in-law to my husband.
She sends cards in the mail to us and to my girls. (those are treasures already)
She trusts the Lord through very tough times.
She loves us well, and loves our girls well.

She is a blessing to us and to so many.
I am so proud to call her my mom.
