Happy Birthday MAMA!

I have the best parents. If you don't know them, you need too. Seriously they are the best!
Today is my mom's birthday. She is 29. Younger than me even! Amazing huh? For my top ten here are a few of the things I love the most about her.

  1. She is the calmest person I know. Even if things are stewing beneath the surface, you would never be able to tell. She is able to project that to others as well and make people comfortable.

  2. She looks amazing for having 7 adult children and 18 grandchildren. Mary Kay works!

  3. Our family is all very close and we spend a lot of time together. She is the glue that holds us all together and we love to be together. I have heard others (Ryan) say that it is unusual how much time we spend together, but I love it. (and so does he)

  4. She genuinely cares about people. She has a way of making you feel like you are the most important person in a room full of people.

  5. Her house will always be my home. And it is always clean and beautiful.
  6. She has become one of my favorite people in my adult life. I can't say the same for when I was a teenager, but we all know I was dumb.
  7. My children absolutely LOVE her and want to be around her. It is great to watch their faces light up, even when we mention Maga.
  8. My husband Loves her. The scary Mother-in-law stories do not apply to our world.
  9. She loves to make things better. Her attitude is always one of "how can we improve upon what we have?" She is a great example of finding the good in any situation.
  10. She is super supportive. Whenever she can, she is in attendance at kids special events. Dance recitals, preschool graduations, etc. She is there, even if Dad can't make it she comes alone.
  11. I want to be just like her when I grow up. I have a long way to go, but I am trying and I have a great resource to look to everyday.

I LOVE YOU MOM! You are my favorite person.

Aww, Hope your mom has a wonderful day! She raised a good gal!

My fav though was "but we all know I was dumb." lol Weren't we all as teens? I was dumb when we were roommates too! Not sure if I grew out of it yet either...
