But, for the sake of the blog I will just go with short….
First off~ I would thank her for her example, sacrifice, and never ending trust and faith in us. Then I guess I would have to thank her for her “tough love” she so wisely helped us endure. It was because of this; I learned that all actions have consequences, good and bad, and I had to live with the choices I made. LIFE SAVER to learn this early!!!!
Next~ I would have to tell her how much I appreciated the fact that she took us places, EVERYWHERE! Shopping, parks, horseback riding, long trips, short trips, from one end of the US to the other, even over seas. She never made us feel as though we were a bother. She truly loved having us around and we knew it. She built great memories I will NEVER forget!
She was always there for us, annoyingly so sometimes. But, I KNEW I could count on her 1000% day or night she would be there. Words cannot express the importance of that! So I dedicate my life to be there for my kids…. You never know how long that will be.
Last but certainly not least, and truth be told probably the first question I would ask is…… What in the heck were you thinking sending Kirsten and I on a Grey Hound BUS by ourselves when we were so little, or at all for that matter?????? Were you CRAZY!!!!!!!
Happy Birthday mom, we love you!
