Happy Birthday Mom!

Today, is my wonderful mother's birthday. I love her very much. Below are the 10 top reasons why I love her.

This was taken a few months ago, when Melissa taught me how to cut my mom's hair. I had dyed it the week before. I think it turned out great. The only problem is, I don't remember how I did it.

#10-I love that my mom taught me to love music. Some of my favorite memories as a kid are when she used to dance with me in the living room. It was always to the Beatles, Elvis or Neil Diamond. Love all those groups.

#9- I love that my mom always makes sure that I am taken care of. She always brings me lunch. Thanks mom!

#8- I love that my mom is always there for me at the drop of a hat. I can call her and she will be there. I do this to her a lot. She is a good sport. She always says, "Aren't you glad I love ya?" when I thank her for coming on such short notice.

#7- I love that my mom has always cared for other people. She has taken people under her wing. She has let people live with us when they had no other place to go. One time she even paid for one of her friends to get dental work done because she couldn't afford it.

#6- I love that she supports me in everything I do.

#5- I love that my mother has always kept her promises. She promised me that I would get braces when I was younger. It took a few years but I got them. She even said she would get me a car if I graduated high school. I got my car. It wasn't new but it was a car.

#4- I love that my mom has always used the positive reinforcement thing. She has always told me that I am good, beautiful, smart, that she loves me and that I don't make stupid decisions. This has given me self worth.

#3- I love that she loves to hang out with me. I hang out with her almost once a week. I enjoy her company.

#2- I love how my mother has always nurtured me. Every time I was sick when I was a kid, we didn't have much money but she made sure I had anything I wanted at the time. She still takes care of me when I am sick. Though my husband is really good at that now.

The number on reason I love my mother is that she just plain loves me and loves being a grandma to Ayla. She loves her very much. 

Happy Birthday Mom! 

I hope you have a wonderful day! I love you!
