I'm sure it wasn't easy to become an instant mother to an 8 yr. old : )
~eating the dough when you baked
~listening to Shirley Temple records
~roller skating door to door to hang advertisements for Dad's stores
~going to plays on Mt. Helix
~the paper maiche Snoopy head you made for my costume in the Christmas play
~the Easter dress and hat you made for me
~all the slumber parties
~Thomas Brother's maps being your second favorite book in the world : )
~Shaklee and make up lessons
Thank you for....
~having my colors done
~teaching me to drive when I couldn't get the hang of it from Dad or Grandpa : )
~letting us talk you into lots of trips to the beach
~rides everywhere! Unlike my friends parents, I always knew that you wouldn't mind giving me a ride to any Bible study or teen devotional I wanted to go to
~for charging up your credit card for all those clothes for going off to college and all the help getting ready to go
~for sending cute decorations when my dorm room looked so gloomy
~for listening to me talk nonstop every night when M. broke my heart. (you must have been bored stiff but I couldn't tell) Your listening ear, helped heal my heart and then God brought me the man of my dreams!
~for loving my hubby
~for being a sweet and loving 'Gramma' to my kiddos.
~And most of all for showing me your absolute love for the Word of God. I never doubted that it sustained you and was the most important thing in your life. I'm so thankful to have had that example.
Happy Mother's Day!
I love you,
