Happy Mother's Day

Well, it's Mother's Day and this is my space to write, so I want to brag on my mom. Here she is:

She'll LOVE that I posted a picture of her. I need to take some pictures of her because this is at least 3 years old. Anyway, her name is Becky (Rebecca). It was her mom's middle name, my middle name, and my daughter's name. I LOVE that. I love the legacy and having that connection with the women in our family.

My mom is a nurse, officially retired I guess, but once a nurse always a nurse. She's still the go-to nurse among friends and family for nurse questions, especially about kids.

She taught me to love the Lord, to speak my mind (although she probably wished she hadn't at times-ha!), and to play the piano. She showed me how to make your marriage a priority, to support your children, and to be a loyal friend. I love that she loves my husband like he's her son and she dotes on our children like any great Nana does.

All that and she makes a mean lasagne. What more can you ask for?

You're the best, Mom! I love you!
