It's been a while since I had a mother of my own. You see mine passed away the year I was graduating college. My dad had passed away a couple months before my high school graduation, and since his passing she just didn't "do" well. It's hard to explain, but she was merely a ghost of herself since the love of her life was gone.
She was a fantastic mom. Showing me love through the things she did, and didn't, do. In fact, the whole reason I have this little white house, with it's black shutters, on 2.5 acres of land, is because my mom showed me how to live in a little white house on 3+ acres of land. She showed me every day how to take care of my house, family and farm so that everyone who entered and exited was different.
She is the epitome of the following quote:
"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier." Mother Teresa
I know she blessed everyone around her... and she blessed me.
Milo and Dixie gave me a card for Mother's Day. It has a dachshund on the front!!! They went together with Reed to buy me my favorite M&Ms... this was after they spent 8 hours yesterday working outside with me, which was to be my Mother's Day gift!! *I've trained all 3 of them right!!!* (I would show you the one Reed bought, but he forgot to sign it. :D)
