It's hard to find the words to talk about how ridiculously awesome my mom is, both a person and as a mom.

She's my shopping partner, fellow book lover, shoe aficionado, and coffee connoisseur.
My mom has mended ripped hems, skinned knees, and broken hearts.
She told me I had to go back to school when I was on the edge of giving up.

She drove me to music lessons, sports practice, youth group, and a gazillion other activites all after a long day of work. I took that for granted then...I find it amazing now.
She made sure I knew how took cook at least one breakfast, lunch, and dinner before I left for college; she also taught me to cook over a campfire, a propane stove, and an overturned coffee can.
My taught me to be stronger, smart, independent, and compassionate.
