30 Days of Gratitude: Day 6

Image and video hosting by TinyPicI am thankful for my amazing mom!  She left last Thursday after being here two weeks.  The time went by way too quickly.  We had an amazing visit and she was able to spend lots of time with Ellie.  Thankfully, she'll be back at Christmas.

My mom is one of my very best friends.  My dad passed away when I was 12 so it was just my mom, sister and I after that.  She was our rock.  She could have become sad and bitter, but she had two little girls to take care of, and she did.  So many people lose their faith when something bad happens, but not my mom.  She continued to take us to church and be a wonderful christian example for us both.  She taught me how to put others first and serve them.  She taught me that it's not all about me.  She taught me so many things that I look forward to teaching Ellie.  I think I'm a pretty good mom (so far), but it's because she was such a wonderful example for me...and she still is. 

I love you mom and am so thankful that God gave me to you.
