Here she is....

I'd like to introduce you to one of the most powerful and beautiful influences in my life.

One of my very best friends and confidantes....
Isn't she beautiful?

She hasn't changed a lick, has she?

Please indulge me for a moment while I chat with Mom....

Mom, these are the gifts I see in you:

You have great strength...a strong faith in God...and strong character.
You are hospitable, and have given me much guidance in this area.
You have great friends, because you ARE a great friend to others.
You are generous...and not just with our family.
You have always displayed a servant's heart.
You are fun to be with.
You have a great sense of humor.
You are gracious...always a lady.
You are beautiful...inside and out.
You have always been a devoted Mom...even when I didn't make it easy for you.

Thanks for your example, your love, your forgiveness, your love for Daddy, and your devotion to God and our family.
I love and treasure you, Mom.
Happy Mother's Day!

Now, if you'll excuse me....I need to go blow my nose.
