My Mom


Everything I am, I owe to my angel mother.
By Abraham Lincoln.

All day long I have been thinking about my mom. How do you express a feeling so deep? I am very thankful for my mom. When I heard this quote, I loved it because I definitely owe everything I am to my Angel Mother.
I remember when I was a child, my mom's health wasn't the best and I remember thinking how can she be so patient. Even though she was not feeling well she never complained and always kept going and going. There are so many things that she has taught me. I think the best way is to list some of them.
1. My mom taught me patience.
2. My mom taught me to endure life.
3. My mom taught me to never complain.
4. My mom taught me to have faith in my Savior Jesus Christ and to pray to my Heavenly Father.
5. My mother taught me that I was never alone.
6. My mom taught me how to work.
7. My mom taught me how to clean and do laundry.
8. My mom taught me to love the outdoors and especially her love for Yellowstone.
9. My mom taught me the unconditional love that a person has for their child.
10. My mom taught me that I can do anything.
11. My mom taught me to love flowers, flowers, flowers.
12. My mom taught me the great joy of storytelling to children.
13. My mom instilled in me the great love for brand new babies.
14. My mom taught me how to be a mother and listen but how to be a friend and love no matter what.
15. She taught me to enjoy every minute of each day.
16. She showed me the greatest love that you can have is by serving your own family.
The list goes on and on.
My mom has helped to mold me to who I am today. I can never repay her for the many lessons she has taught me, and the greatest gift that she taught me about which is the love for my Savior. Thanks MOM!!! I love you!!!
