The importance of being honest and telling the truth. Even when it’s hard. I learned it from my mom.
How to sew. How to garden. How to cook. How to make a house a home. I learned it from my mom.
The value of sitting down to dinner as a family. To love unconditionally. I learned it from my mom.
What it means to earn a living. The value of money. How to balance my checkbook and be a good steward of my finances. I learned it from my mom.
To have empathy and compassion for others. To root for the underdog. To see others as Jesus sees them. I learned it from my mom.
And so today, on my mom’s 70th birthday, I just wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate her and all of the things she has taught me. So very grateful to be her daughter.
