happy mother's day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there. I'm pretty sure that I have one of the best on the planet, though, and I am so thankful for my mom and all that she has given me! I found this sweet picture a few days ago and couldn't help but share this fantastic family pic, my dad's shorts included. That's me on my mom's back and two sisters, the other is probably the photographer. It looks like a pretty ideal little family and I couldn't be more proud to have grown up in this one!

So because it's mother's day weekend, here are a few 
highlights of why my mom is one of the best:

** she is still the primary recipient of those phone calls when I am in hysterics and always knows what to say to bring me back to earth**

**she makes any weekend we go home feel like a vacation**

**I still have childhood notes of encouragement in all of my journals from her**

**she LOVES to laugh- and definitely brings a good bit of wit to the family**

**she dances like Beyonce**

**she is full of integrity and really practices what she preaches....literally, she is a pastor and preaches (and I'm really proud of her for that)**

**she woke up in the middle of the night with me in high school to watch a meteor shower**

**she sings a great song about barges**

**any ridiculous dream I had as a kid growing up, she would always validate....even when chances of me going to outer space, performing on Broadway, or acting in Hollywood weren't too likely**

**she treats my pups like they are two more grand-kids**

**happy mothers day, have a good weekend**
