Thank you, Mom!

When I was a little girl, my Mom was my hero. We played "elephant" in the yard, using leaves picked from our Elephant Ear plants. While she made clothes for my little brother and me, she taught me how to sew clothes for my dolls. I also remember that her nose was often in a book - and therefore she instilled a love of reading within me, which she nurtures still today.

As an adult, my Mom is still my hero. And she's my best girlfriend and confidant - someone I can always turn to for advice and to laugh with. She's a talented artist, an excellent cook and an eloquent writer. (Recently, she wrote a children's book that was inspired by my son, Dylan!)

Not only does she continue to love and support me, but she's the best Nana ever to my children. She loving teaches my kiddos to embrace their artistic side and fearlessly go after what they want. They also bake cookies and plant fruits and veggies in her garden. And they read lots and lots of books!

I'm so proud of my Mom, and I'm grateful for everything she's taught me - especially how to be the best Mom I can be for my children. Thanks, Mom!

What does your Mom do that makes your heart sing?
