All that I am I owe to my mother....
Dad, Mom, Pauline and I MANY years ago
Mom waiting in front of the TV for the BYU game
We must protect our 'hairdo'
Isn't she so cute?
That quote was said by George Washington. I'm sure his mother was very proud. I'm not so sure it's as much as a compliment when I say it, but I mean it sincerely to my mother. I am taking my mom to the airport in a couple of hours. She has been here a couple of weeks and we have really enjoyed her. She is a very special lady. We have gone to lunch and the movies, we have watched some dvd's of the kids performances (if you can't get your mother to watch those...who will?). We watched Jordan play ball again and Easton scrimmage. We bought some christmas presents and decorated the house. We watched BYU and Jazz play--(her favorite teams). She really is the kindest, loving woman I know. She loves her children, and her grandchildren and her great grandchildren (and the two dogs) with all her heart and soul. She thinks we're perfect (her memory is fading) and amazing and tells people that wherever we go. She brags about us and each one of her grandchildren daily, and if she is not bragging about us she is praying for us. She's getting older and sometimes I know she feels lonely. She misses my dad mostly and wishes for better health. I feel very lucky to have a wonderful mother in my life who has always made me feel special, loved and wanted.
