Mom Strawberry Jam, Quilts by hand

As a mom I have the ability to:

Use the restroom, tweet and organize a drawer at the same time.
I can also read blogs, talk on the phone and feed my children
all while functioning on 1/4th the recommended amount of sleep for an average adult -
and I wouldn't give it up for the world.

I so wanted to post an amazing tribute to my mom today. I thought, I paced, I looked at old photos, I sneezed, I coughed, I took medicine...I gave up.

My mom knows how much I love her, she knows I don't know what I would do without her and that I appreciate every little thing she does. She knows that the relationship she has built with my daughters is priceless and that they love her so much!

So instead of my amazing tribute- I have to go out on a limb and just share a few random thoughts about my mom:

Strawberry Jam
Annual exams

Quilts by hand
Vacations by the sand
Lead the troop
Soothed the Croupe

PTA Queen
Suffered a mean teen

Costume Maker
Birthday Cake Baker

The Hyatt sounds good
not camping in the woods

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! I love you mom.
