Dedicated to My Amazing Mother

Another Mother's day and did I get my mom a present or a card even? No. It's not that it slipped my mind, because there were days where I thought I should send her a card. I could justify it that Mother's Day isn't a favorite holiday of hers since she uses that day to focus on her few errors as a mother instead of the many wonderful things she has done, and so why bring it up. But I'm really just plain lazy and my mother deserves a better more thoughtful daughter. You see where I get it from, eh?

So in a sense here is my Mother's Day card.

Sometimes I forget all the wonderful things that you have done. You practically raised two very willful children by yourself (with the help of some great aunts and uncles and a very generous and loving grandmother). You put yourself through school and found a career. Your strength is so inspiring to me. As is your faith in our Heavenly Father.

I remember when I was little walking past your room and seeing you kneeling down by your bed and praying. You seemed to be praying for a long time and I always wondered how you had so much to pray for because I didn't pray that long. I think of that every now and then when I think about prayer. You've always been such a good example to me and even though I may not have followed it right away, it was always with me.

Now I won't say that you've done all this without complaint. There's definitely been some murmuring here and there, but that's what I love about you. You're real. I've loved that since I became an adult you can confide in me and I can comfort you when you need it. I hope you know you can always count on me for that as I know I can always count on you.

You're one of my best friends. I couldn't ask for a better mother. I love you so much and am grateful to you for more than I could possibly say. I'm sure there are things you have done for me that I have no idea about. I love you and I hope you have a wonderful day and that I would say this on any day of the year.

Thank you, Cassie. You are an amazing daughter. I was probably on my knees so long thanking Heavenly Father for trusting me with two great kids. I love you so much
