Just wanted to say Happy Mother’s Day! And give a big THANK YOU for all that you do! Even though your title has been upgraded in the past couple of years to “grandma” and “mimi”, don’t think that you’re still not my mom, I’m sorry but you never get to lose that title with your kiddos!
I wanted to say thank you for all that you’ve done for me. Since I was a little one you were always there to teach me and guide me into who I am today. And rest assured, I got caught for every bad thing I did, so there are no skeletons in this closet. I cannot however speak for any of my siblings on that subject (haha!) Growing up I could never think of you as anything but my mom, I never believed that you ever were a teacher for instance. But it all makes perfect sense now how much I can look back and see how much you have taught me.
Life has been wild this past year for me. I found the man of my dreams and now we’re getting married! Can you believe it?! We bought a house and some land. And both of these situations all came with their own challenges and new sense of adventure. And you, you were right there all along the way to be the stable one. You have always been such a rock in my life. This new life we’re starting here only a few short miles and a dirt road from my homeplace, I hope it will be that same thing for our kids. A good place to call home.
You don’t need me to tell you you’re incredible mom, because you do so much with humility and love, and you would do all the same things even if people never noticed or never said a word of thank you. But I hear just about every day how awesome you are, so your secret is out mom, sorry to tell you. You’re such an amazing woman who has built a wonderful home that all of us kids love to come back to. You’re a grandma that has shown us all again what a wonderful childhood we had growing up on the farm. I can see it when those little kids pull in the driveway and they can’t wait to run around, ride on tractors, help you bake cookies, or go on a walk to the creek. Thank you for all you have done for me, and all I know you will continue to do for everyone you meet.
Love you tons!
Mimi, Grandma, Aunt, Sister, Daughter…My Mom!
