You haven't met an incredible woman until you meet this one.

She gave birth to 6 kids.... 2 at one time!
She even lost one and still had the strength to have more.

She cooks, makes us cakes, takes us to the beach, buys us everything we would ever need... the list will never end.

She's always right. Yep... she is. The mom is always right! 

Basically, I wouldn't be who I am without her and I don't think my brothers and sisters would be either.

She did an awesome job of raising a great family and I hope that her grandchildren are just like the little soldiers we were... haha jk!! 

So, Mom, thank you for everything you have done for me! You believed in my when a lot of people didn't. Thanks for all the yummy cakes and ice cream cakes you bought me for my birthdays, all those uncountable present I have received over the years at Christmas, all the advice you gave me that I didn't listen to and I should have, and for being the most awesome mom in the world.

And to end, a funny story. Now that it is in the past I think I can tell it.

The other day, I was on my way home from school and mom calls me... she asked me where I was and I told her. She then said "Well ALL the cows are in MY yard, so you need to call so they can come get them all out of my yard!"  I told her to calm down and go inside... I was in the driveway anyways. "Well ALL the horses are out too! Now Rose is in the horse feed!!!" Once again... mom go inside I'll take care of it!! 

I pull up in the driveway and get all my horses in the pastures... next the cows. There were about 15 cows out. I got my handy dandy whip and started herding some back into the pasture. Mom was spraying the water hose in the yard to get them to go back towards the pasture. Once I have gotten a few in I turn around and see a movie scene that literally made me laugh right there. (She probably wouldn't have been happy if she knew I had laughed!) But I did.

There was a Big cow running full trot through the flower beds, bushes, and across the front walk way... then comes Mom running after the cow, Mom is barefoot in a sundress and is in  full speed across the yard with a broom in hand! It was so funny! I can play it slow motion in my head and I just laugh all over again!


Oh wee, Mom, even if cows and my horses poop in your yard all the time, you know you still love me! ;)

I love you!

Happy Mother's Day!

Molly, that story made me laugh so hard. Your mom can own any cow trying to get up in her garden!

What a sweet post. I loved it! Your mama sounds like a wonderful lady. Your story about shooing the cows and horses out of the yard with a broom made me laugh. The things moms tolerate for their kids... :)

Have a great week!
