There are so many things I could write about my mother. She was a stay at home mom, something I didn’t appreciate when I was little and living at home. She was a tennis player and won many trophies in her local league. To my sorrow, I’ve never watched her play a game. When I went off to college she sent many cards, often more than one a week. She came to visit and help out when each of my children were born, something I hope to be able to do for my daughters. I married and move out of state when I 19 years old and all the things that I didn’t appreciate slapped me upside the head right away. I’ve spent more years out of her house than in it and have missed her so much. Not just the things she did for us, but I missed just being around her. I’m so grateful to have been able to visit so often these last two years. She’s an amazing woman and I love her dearly.
Happy Birthday Mom! Enjoy yours socks, they’ll be done and off in the mail tomorrow 🙂
