Happy Mother's Day Mommy

Thank you for never pushing us or forcing your opinions on us. We never have to worry about what you will think. Either you hide it well or you really don't have an opinion, either way it works.

Thank you for joining the church. Thank you for taking us all even when we didn't want to go and when it would have been easier to give in.

Thank you for teaching us about being a good spouse. I might not be like you, but I appreciate the example.

Thank you for loving my kids unconditionally and equally. As far as they know.

Thank you for being there when my babies were born and for taking over as labor coach when necessary.

Thank you for teaching us to honor our ancestors and to honor tradition.

Thank you for not being materialistic.

Thank you for the sacrifice you've made of your "golden years" alone with your husband to take care of your mother-in-law. We love having her here where we can visit her more and we know how much work and strain it can be.

Thank you for giving me siblings I wouldn't have chosen to have at the time..
Thank you for joining us for girl things. Even if it's at a bar or something.

So cute! when was the coastal pic taken?

You're mom is so sweet! I seem to remember she can put her foot down if need be.

So who in your fam did all the family photo scanning? You all seem to have access.
