Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to my mom who:
*sat in the hot car under a shade tree for hours every summer day so I could swim.
*created mystery suppers for no reason other than just because. Seriously, what little girl wouldn't want to hunt for the knife in the piano bench. I loved it!
*who made holidays so much fun.
*who was okay with the fact that I thought, "Mama made me mash my M&M's" was a real song.
*played the piano late at night while I was in bed - I loved that.
*taught me right from wrong.
*sacrificed her own wants for mine.
*who walked a 5K this past fall just months after her serious, scary illness.
*is now the grandmother of my precious daughter.

I love you, Mom.
I'm thankful for you.
You made my childhood delightful.
You are more than a mom, you are my friend.
I don't know what I'd do without you!

P.S. Mom, please don't kill me for posting this picture. I like it. We are at a movie in Arizona last summer.
