I know a lot of people say how they have the most amazing mother in the world…and while that may be true to them, it is also true to me. I truly do have the most amazing, selfless, beautiful, heart-of-gold, funny & loving mother. To say that I’m lucky to call her Mom is an understatement. She is the one I can call with any question or concern. She is the one that would drop anything to come help me with the most trivial thing. She is the one that will give up any free time she has to go help someone else (and sometimes I have to remind her to take a day for HER). We are so lucky to have her in our family, and I know that I am guilty of not telling her how much I appreciate everything she does for me:
Mom, I love when we get the giggles and laugh so hard our sides hurt. I love when we get some time together to go have some fun shopping & browsing around. Thank you for teaching me how to be a good person by your example. You make my house-cleaning chores a lot more fun when you come over and chat with me and dig in and help me get things done. I value your opinion & your input on decision’s I’m making in life. And I will never be able to repay you for every sacrifice you’ve made to make my life so memorable. Thank you. I love you. I’m so glad to call you a friend. I hope that I’m at least HALF the mother you are when I have kids of my own.
Mom & I on my Wedding Day
Not only do I have the most amazing Mother in the world…I’m lucky enough to have the most amazing Mother-in-law as well. Shell, thank you for being such a great person in my life for the last 6+ years. You’re a fun co-worker, a friend, my horseback riding partner, and the key-holder to the mystery that is my husband. I can’t thank you enough for having such an objective point of view, and for your support. I love you dearly, and couldn’t ask for a better mother-in-law. I never in my life thought I would be so lucky as to have another person in my life that I could call “Mom”, but I’m lucky enough to have you. Thank you “Mom”!

I love you both so very much, and I know I’m guilty of not telling you this enough. I love and appreciate you and all you do for me (and D too). Happy Mother’s Day!
