I am a terrible daughter. Yesterday was Mother’s Day, as I’m sure you all know, and I didn’t call my mom. (hanging my head in shame) *shielding myself from tomatoes*
There is a card in the mail, but I didn’t buy it until the day before and since she doesn’t live in the same town, she probably won’t get until two days after Mother’s Day.
The card is really simple. In fact the category said “simply stated”. I honestly can’t really handle all the mushy stuff that somebody else wrote. I can barely say the mushy stuff myself.
(I did say Happy Mother’s Day on Facebook, but that honestly seems lame, especially since my Mom rates better than a Facebook status.)
I am blessed to have a Mom who understands that though. She understands procrastination and that I don’t like talking on the phone. She probably even understands my card choice.
My mom understands that I’m an internal processor and that sometimes I write my thoughts out best. It helps that she does that too.
So, I’m going to try to make up for it a day late and a dollar short. Here’s a short list of things I want to thank my mom for.
Thank you, Mom for…
- being understanding
- playing endless board games with me
- reading to me
- teaching me how to keep a home
- showing me how to be a good wife
- being patient with my stubbornness
- showing me how to love Jesus more than things or people
- taking care of me when I was sick
- working extra hours, so I could get a better education
- showing me how to serve others
I’m going to limit my list to ten, though I could probably spend all day adding to it.
Love you, Mom!
