Gratitude isn't a big enough word

I am grateful for this date, March 14th -- aka My Mom's Birthday. And I am forever grateful for being blessed with such a humble, thoughtful, beautiful, giving woman as a role model, mentor and guiding force in my life. And she is a a river, cool and clear, soft and steady and yet with the strength to cut through a mountain. I am grateful that she taught me to love Nancy Drew and Pollyanna, that she let me play with her make-up samples and wear her high heel Candy's, that she made me volunteer at nursing homes and look up words in the dictionary when I didn't know them instead of giving me the easy way out, I'm thankful she never let me say the word "hate" in her presence, or "fart" for that matter:) But I'm most thankful that she's always stood by me, reminding me of my faith when I felt weak, believing for me when I was too afraid, believing in me when I've needed it most. Plus she makes the world's BEST cookies. Yep, it is a joy indeed to be Lynn's daughter. Thanks, Mom:)


  1. Here here! She is without doubt my hero. Despite how furious I used to get when she wouldn't tell me what a word meant...
