How do I even begin to describe my wonderful mother? She is a pillar of strength. When my dad died she told us we had a choice either we continue forward, rely on each other for strength and grow closer as a family, or we crumble. We chose to press on. She has held our family together as we have faced one of the hardest trials imaginable. My mother is a true example of a Christ like woman. She never says no to helping someone no matter what it maybe. Her family is her whole life. She has taught me how to be a good mom. She has always been my friend, someone I could confide in. She loves deeper than anyone I know. She has allowed me to borrow from her testimony as I have created my own. She is my neighbor and I am the luckiest for it. She is always willing to help with my girls and she is their best friend. She is everything a mother should be, is a perfect example to me, I strive everyday to be more like my mother. I love you mom, thank you for teaching me, thank you for loving me. You are celestial. I pray to become like you. I love you more than I know how to express.
