Happy Birthday Lady

Today is the ladies (my mom) birthday.  There are so many great things that I could say about my mom I don't even know where to start.  She always has been the rock of my family.  She always keeps everyone together.  There have been times where it would have been so easy for her to say things are too hard and be weak.  Instead, she has always faced adversity with great courage and bravery.  Her example of pressing forward is something I always look to.  
I always say that she drives me crazy but I think it's just because we are so alike.  It kinda shocks me the more I look and act like her.  Seriously, if I could only do half the things she can accomplish in one day.  She knows how to make the most out of twenty-four hours.  She is so talented.  She knows how to take care of a yard, she had great organization skills, she is great at sewing, she had taught me how to crochet, she is good at keeping a clean house, she is a hard worker, she had some great recipes, and the list could go one forever.
I love that my mom had taught me to love the Gospel and the trust that Heavenly Father knows what he is doing.  She has been such a great mom.  She is always looking out for all of her kids whether we know it or not.  She is so loving and will always tell us how much we mean to her.  He simple notes that she writes to us me the world to me.  
I am so grateful to have her not only as my mother but also as my friend.  She has been there for me especially since Jordan has been away.  Happy Birthday Lady.  I love you.
