A Mother's Love

On this Mother's Day I am so grateful for a wonderful mother. My mom is a very talented women who can do almost anything. She keeps such a perfectly clean house that Mr. Clean himself couldn't surpass my mother's cleaning abilities. Her cooking skills are to be highly sought after. She makes sure she has dinner on the table everyday by 6:00 p.m. No exceptions. If only I had inherited that same ability, but alas, I have not. She is very creative and can whip up any kind of craft project that would rival Martha Stewart . She can sew a prom dress in no time flat. (She does all my sewing projects for me. If only had listened to her when she tried to teach me how to sew when I was younger.) She is always willing to serve others. She is very knowledgable of the scriptures and can teach a great Sunday School lesson. I also think my mom is gorgeous to boot.
I have also been blessed with a great mother-in-law as well. Debra has raised four boys. The three oldest of whom are each only a year apart. After having a son of my own I am in awe at how she managed to do that.
She is one of the most patient people I have met. Not to mention one of the hardest workers. She also makes a very delicious Sunday dinner. I am grateful for the manner in which she has raised her son, my husband, for he is a good man.
That good son of her's let me sleep in this morning while he got up at 6:30 a.m. with Easton. He made me breakfast and surprised me with tickets to see Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover event next Saturday! He knows me so well.
Debra also celebrated her birthday yesterday so a big Happy Birthday shout out goes to her!

Way to go hubby! Your mom is so great, but hey she was raised by some really great people. I wish I would have listened to my mom when she tried to teach me to sew too. I would love to see your new house next time I am up that way. Infact are you going to be around the 20th? Let me know, I'll be right there in the ranches.
