In honor of mom...

"Mother's hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever..."

On this day of 
c e l e b r a t i n g  m o t h e r' s...
 I wanted to make a gratitude list to my momma.  

It's amazing when you think about how much influence 
a strong, dedicated, homemaking, independent raising, 
and loving woman can have on your life.

thank-you mom for teaching me...
to be independent,
to have a goal and persevere,
to use coupons and shop daily,
to cook and bake, 
to love your family with clean clothes, clean floors, and good home made food,
to paint, and paint, and paint,
to garden, 
to send cards (although timely would be better)
to paint, paint, and paint, again, (walls of course)
to love your children and support them in each and every one of their own ways,
to be active and not sit on a sofa for long,
to use bleach and not do too much laundry at home,
and most of all...
to love your children and your family unconditionally.

love you mom!
(and love all of my mom friends.. who know about the secret code of being a mom...)
(hint: it starts with L)

the kids love their nanny too!
