Happy Birthday. . .

Happy Birthday, Mom!!!

My mom is an amazing woman. I remember the first time I saw her as that--an amazing woman. I had graduated college and was a working woman. I came home for a visit and went to church with her. I remember watching her interact with people and being so impressed with her graciousness. It was then that I realized how much she had done for so many people in our community and especially our family. All this time, she had just been "Mom" to me. She has devoted her life to service. She serves her family with all her heart. She serves in her ward with dedication. She has done hundreds of projects for the church Humanitarian Center. She is the ultimate homemaker--seamstress, SPOTLESS house, phenomenal cook, doctrine discussions, spiritual atmoshpere. My mom is a true LADY. There are females. There are girls. There are women, and there are ladies. My mom is a woman and a lady. Other than the fact that she would do anything for those she loves, one of my favorite things I love about my mom is her sense of humor. A lot of people don't get to see it, but she often says the funniest things. Also, she let's the rest of us joke about her and she laughs along. She's a great sport. If only some day I can be half as wonderful as she is. . . . I love you, mom! Happy Birthday.

That was quite a write up. I hope I can live up to it. Thank you. However this does not let you off the hook for the April fools trick. Mom
