Dear Mom

My mom is fantastic. 
Hands down, fan-flippin-tastic. 
She has taught me so much in these 22 (almost 23) years I have had with her.
Here are just a few of the things that make my mom wonderful (in no particular order).

Cutie Patootie.
My oh my can she cook! I never went hungry growing up, I still don't and probably never will :)
She would do anything for her children.
She adores her husband.
She works hard, and I mean hard.
She has a love for the outdoors.
She is fun to talk to.
She put up with me during the hormonal, awkward, emotional roller coaster that were my teen years...yikes, I don't know how you did it.
I have freezer full of frozen casseroles for busy days....I know I'm spoiled.
She raised four children.
She has an incredible eye for designing and decorating.
She has such a tender heart.
She is nurturing.
She is absolutely adorable.
She is a great listener.
She is always there for me, and always will be.
Every night growing up she would tuck me into bed, pray with me and kiss me goodnight.
She shared Jesus with me.

Mother's Day 2009

Mom, I love you more than you will ever know. Thank you for being a wonderful, loving, God fearing mom to us kids. For wiping the snot of my face when I was sick, for kissing my owie's, for teaching me how to never pay full price for something, for disciplining me, and for teaching me about God and how much He loves me. Thank you for setting such a great example of a Godly woman.

Happy Mother's Day!

Is that really me you're talking about? :oP Oh Rae, you warm my heart. There is nothing in this entire world more wonderful and precious than reading words like you just wrote. Nothing on this Earth means more to me than my family. My children are the joy of my life and I pray that I have many more years to enjoy the love that you lavish on me. Thank you for being a most AMAZING daughter -- Rachel Johanna Gordon, my almost-23-year-old! I love you!
