My Mom :)

This is my Mom. The woman who raised me and helped shape and mold who I am today. Today is her birthday, so I wanted to put my mom up in the blogger spotlight, and tell you all a little about who she is and what she's got going on!

As you can see, I have a very beautiful Mommy. I think it may be unfortunate for me to have a red head for a mother, because they are rare enough, that whenever I see a red head, I feel a strange pain my heart and am flooded with a sadness at the fact that I am no longer able to be around my Mom very often.

My Mom has MANY amazing abilities. She's a VERY smart, VERY talented woman. One of the best talents she has, is her ability to cook anything and everything and make it taste amazing! Seriously... I'd pay big $$$ to eat at my mom's restaurant if she owned one.

This past Christmas, Mom even ventured to make some gluten-free stuff just for me! It was delicious! I'm so proud of my mom, and so thankful she made the extra effort just for me. She's a very thoughtful woman.

Here's a picture I really didn't want to post... it's not too flattering for either one of us. But I wanted an old photo from when I still lived at home. This is all I have with me.

My Mom was a very loving mother. She always told me how beautiful I am, and always made sure I knew that she loved me. She is also a crusader for justice! She stood up for me, and fought for me, through all of my trials as a child, teen, and young adult.

She also threw killer pool parties and all of my friends STILL love my mom, and used to come over all the time just to be around the "fun" mom and get some of her delicious cooking! This picture is at one of the pool parties we had. I miss those days.

Speaking of nurturing, here's a pic of her doing that...

Mom's also lots of fun. She loves to play games, and joke around. She's got a wicked sick sense of humor (we all do, but where do you think we got it from?). I like to think I inherited a lot of my personality from my mother. Part of that is the ability to make any situation fun, and just let loose and enjoy yourself. She's really good at that, and when Mom's having fun... EVERYONE is having fun!

Mom LOVES Chocolate Milk...

Chocolate in General...

Especially German Chocolate...

Pretty much anything German, mom loves it...

Mom Speaks German...

Mom was born in Landstuhl, Germany on March 19th, 19**. (don't you worry about how old she is)

She was grew up EVERYWHERE, but some of the places include Germany, France, Georgetown, TX, and I can't remember the rest.

Also, My mom is an AMAZING artist! She did a HUGE Mural for her school in New York City, and did a really stellar job! I wish I had photos of that to share with you, but I don't.

Here's a photo of when Mom met Jeff for the first time. Mom accepted Jeff like he was her own son. She treated him like family from the very beginning. In fact... she seems to like him a little TOO much... always jokes that he's her favorite and not me... hmm...

That's just Mom, though. She's a very accepting person, with an open heart to everyone wanting to be a part of her life, or her family. It is one of those qualities about my Mother that I try to emulate. Mom has adopted many new siblings for me, and I absolutely love it. She never closes the door on a person in need, mom has always had a big heart especially for those hurting in life. She still does so in working with children with learning disabilities, through her callings in church, and through treating others with respect and kindness.

My mother is a wonderful woman... and I hope she has the best birthday EVER!

I can't wait to see her in 1 week!!!

Lots of Love To My Mom,
