My mom is the best...

{Warning} - Mushy heartfelt post below!

I am so blessed to have an amazing woman for my mom. She is and was the epitome of the perfect mom. She was a stay at home mom for pretty much of my childhood, even though we really couldn't afford for her to be. She just always made it work. And when we were younger, we didn't know the difference.

She was the Brownie's Leader, Class Mom, School Volunteer, Chauffeur, Cheerleading coach {even when her kids weren't even cheerleaders!}, and so much more. We always had home cooked meals and a super clean house. My mom was super mom! She has impacted my life in so many ways. She has set an awesome example of how to put God, her husband, and kids first.

As an adult, she is my best friend. She's the 2nd person {after Matt} that I call or run to when I have good news {or bad news}. I talk to her on my way home from work everyday. And the older I get, the more I'm turning into her! Seriously, it's creepy how much I act like my mom.

She's also the second mom to my babies. She watches them 9+ hours a day, four days a week. And the thing I love the most about that is that I'm able to go to work without worrying about what & how my kids are doing. She respects my wishes as a mom and tries to do things my way. I'm SO blessed.

Mom - I know I don't tell you enough. But you are who I strive to be like! I love you more than words can express!
