Happy Mother's Day

I didn't get a card sent to my mom for Mother's day. So I was going to write a wonderful post about her today. Instead I have spent the last 3 days in bed sick. That is, in bed when I wasn't running to the bathroom. I wish she was here. She could make me some chicken soup and I would be well. And I know that my laundry would be done and my kitchen clean when I get up in the morning.

Since I am sick and didn't get the post written, you won't get to know all the things I wanted to tell you about her. Things like:
*She is the only girl in a family of 6 kids
*She is the middle child and learned to give as good as she got
*She raised 7 children
*3 of her children went on a mission
*7 of her children were married in the temple
*She is always there to just listen when my life falls apart and doesn't go the way I planned- no judgement, just love
*She has 24 grandchildren- 6 of them married, 5 in the temple
*She had 2 great-grandchildren
*She was always home when I got home from school.
*She made breakfast every single morning and dinner every night.
* I never wanted to be anything when I grew up except just like her

But I am not going to get to tell you any of that because I am going back to bed now.

Instead I will just say, Happy Mother's day Mom.

Wish I could send soup through the airwaves. Rest and get better. I love you. Mom

I was down there for Zach's wedding. If I had known you were sick I could have snuck(?) away & made you soup for her. Hope you're better.
