I appreciate my mother so much. She was one of my best encouragers growing up. She taught me to read and I guess a gained from her (and my dad) a love for books.
She would always play board games with my sisters and I. She patiently listened to me jabber.
She comforted me when I needed comforting and spurred me own when I need that.
She was always there for a good hug. She laughed at my jokes and antics. She believed in me.
She's a great mom and grandmommy! I love you. Happy Birthday!
