Awesome Mom

Because my life has been slightly nuts-o (to say the least) --in all areas of life-- I forgot to write up a quick post for my mom's birthday!

She celebrated her 22nd birthday yesterday!!! (hehe)

my mom and her (late) mother --both are Swiss. Circa 2004
I love my mom because she is real. She is a woman who knows her worth, who knows who she is, and who does the tasks ahead of her without an air of complaint. 

She is the most patient woman ever (seriously. I would be long gone with some of the tantrums we kids threw.....). And she loves the Lord with a deep, converted heart and conviction.

She is the essence of charity, beauty, grace, love, motherhood, kindness, compassion, and service. She knows how to throw a mean party, scoop thirds onto everyone's plates, cook up a healthy meal in a blink of the eye, and calm a child down from a fit. 

She is the strongest woman I know!

I love you mommy! Happy Birthday :)
