SPT: Mother's day...


I have recently been really interested in a couple of friends blogs which answer a question or challenge every Tuesday. I then did a lot of searching to find which blogger is posting these challenges so i can participate. I am honored today to post my first spt challenge about my mother. The challenge, what would i like you to know about my mom...
Well, let me start off by saying that i have the BEST mom in the universe! Since i can remember, she has always put me and my siblings first, no matter what! We were always her number one priority, from taking us to school, games, activities, get-togethers, birthday parties, to picking us up from school early if we were sick, making sure we ate at least 3 meals a day, giving hugs and kisses if we were hurt or just because she simply loved us, or even cleaning our messes. My mother was always involved with our lives, which sometimes wasn't fun, but now that i look back, i am so grateful to her for her constant prayers and caring words to me. She, in fact, is the person who taught me to cook, clean, speak, have fun, be thoughtful, give service, be a good wife and mother and everything else i know today. Without her i would not have become the person i am today. She is the greatest example of selfless love and service. If i could grow up and raise a family half as good as she has done, then i will be happy! There is no other woman in the world who could have so much faith and strength with the trials and hardships that my mother has endured. She is truly a hero and an inspiration in my life.
This mother's day i did not have the opportunity to see my mother, but i want her to know how grateful i am for all that she has done for me, i am grateful to her for all the sacrifices she has made in my behalf, i am grateful for her teaching me about the gospel of Jesus Christ and for her testimony, i am grateful for her constant love and support, i am grateful for her beautiful smile and always looking for the good in everything, i am grateful for how hard she works and her constant efforts of always giving me, not only what i need, but all the things i want, I am so grateful for her teaching me all that she knows, and i am most of all grateful that she is MY MOM and that i will be able to live with her for eternity!!
MOM, I LOVE YOU!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY...
can't wait to see you this weekend!

Britt...that was the most beautiful thing I've read in a long long time. Yes, you're right, your mom taught you well and you paid attention. Now it'll be your turn to teach Kate Marie. Great job, honey. I love you. Aunt Linda.
