Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
This won’t be long, ‘cause I can’t even begin to cover all the things you’ve done for me
But I just wanted to publicly thank you for a few of them:
Thank you for loving me, encouraging me, and believing in my dreams
Thank you for going along with my random ideas, such as
Letting me have the closet as my bedroom
Thank you for homeschooling me
Thank you for teaching me about God
Thank you for teaching me what a sesquipedalian is
Thank you for teaching me how to cook, and then letting me do so much of it
Thank you for all the animals you’ve let me have over the years:
Mice, chipmunks, birds, guinea pigs, cats, dogs, goats,
Rabbits, sheep, turtles, frogs, snails, bugs, toads
Thank you for teaching me to love reading
And thank you, thank you, thank you for so many things
Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!
