Happy Birthday Mum!

Mum your getting old! Well, not that old. You are younger than all my friend parents so "way to go!"

10 things I love about my mum:

1. The amount of love you have for me- it's ridiculous
2. You were my "go to person" my "best friend" as a teenager
3. You always make me feel better when I am sick, even if you are in England. Often you take it to the next level my researching all my symptoms and asking your health friends what is wrong with me.
4. Your laugh is fantastic. I love laughing with you even if it makes me pee myself
5. You always go out of your way to bring me joy
6. You are always a good listening ear
7. You love to play games
8. You have always believed in me
9. You make things happen
10.You have always been willing to share your testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and encouraged me to make good choices

Before becoming a mother I had no idea what my mum had done for me, I still don't but motherhood is opening my eyes to a lot that I have taken for granted. Growing up I never remembering hearing my mum complain about being a mother. The sacrifice, the challenges. I always assumed she wanted to do all the things she did for me when I am sure there were times, many times when she could have been developing a career and making more money but she always made me feel so important and special. I hope I can be more loving like my mother, more selfless. I would not be where I am if it were not for you.

Happy Birthday Mum! Have a glorious day, wish I could give you a squeeze:)

P.S You look beautiful in both these pictures I don't want to hear any complaining!

Thank-you Jessie for you loving and generous words, although I thought I was reading about someone else! I'm so please I read this before putting my makeup on otherwise I would have had to re-do it! I feel your squeeze ;-)
