Thank you Mom for wanting me and longing for me to be yours.
I know the waiting and wondering if you would have me was hard.
Thank you for putting up with severe morning sickness and carrying me safe in your womb for 9 long months.
Thank you for choosing to bless me with brothers and a sister, I would not have liked to be an only child.
Thank you for raising me the best you knew how and sacrificing your time and patience to home-school us.
Thank you for all the music lessons- I am so glad to have learned to play the piano, violin and to sing.
Thank you for waking up in the night to listen and pray with me when I had a scary dream.
Thank you for teaching me to cook, and letting me have independence in the kitchen to become a cake decorator.
Thank you for teaching me to sew and giving me the skills to quilt and sew clothes for my children.
Thank you for teaching me that a real artist knows how to turn a mistake into a masterpiece.
I love you Mom!
