Mom Is Walking Down The Aisle

My mom is getting married tomorrow!! We are so excited for her & Bob. They are such a sweet couple and I don't know anyone who deserves this day more than my mom. She is truly an amazing woman. We are so happy to have Bob join the family, and are so thankful that he and my mom found each other. So in honor of the wedding, Oct. 11th, here is a list of the top 11 things I love most about my mom.

1. She is the strongest woman I know. I pray that I have the same strength and courage for my family that she had for us.

2. She is a giver. Not only to people she loves, but also to people she barely knows.

3. Speaking of giving, she not only donates clothes to Goodwill, but also to the local Elsa's as well.

4. Ladies nights at Elsa's and Brio's Patio. Enough said.

5. We pretty much know exactly what the other is thinking without even saying anything, and it's usually funny.

6. She is an amazing listener. I can't even count the times that I have cried and talked while she just listened. I can't even imagine what I would do without her there to talk to.

7. She loves our girls as if they were her own. It is unconditional. And our girls cherish her, when Grandma is around, not much else matters.

8. She is the true definition of a mother. There is nothing she hasn't, or wouldn't do for my brothers and I. She has always been there for us, and has always stood by us, no matter what. She is always there to guide and support, and has been the "glue" that held us together.

9. Even though some people might call it stalking, she's doesn't mind that I call her like 100 times a day.

10. Her hilarious sense of humor. I have laughed till I cried countless times with her. Like recently when I was trying to fit my swollen feet into wedding shoes at David's Bridal...not ideal, but really, really funny.

11. She has not only been an amazing mother my whole life, but my best friend. The woman I can confide in, and laugh with. The woman I look up to.

Congrats Mom! I love you!
