My Mom






My Mom's Birthday was on Februrary 17th and I have been meaning to write about her ever since the day of her Birthday. I don't think she will ever read this blog as she is pretty much computer illiterate, but I still want to write about her for our own recollections...


There are so many great things to say about my Mom, I don't know where to start.


She is really beautiful. She has always been. Breathtakingly so. She has the prettiest hair and the prettiest green eyes you will ever see. She has classic beauty.


She is so kind. Not "kind-because-people-are-watching-kind" but Kind Kind! She would do anything to help someone. She has taught me so much about being kind and sweet. There could not be a sweeter person on this planet. She is so nice that the niceness just oozes out of her. Everyone who has ever met walks away saying, "Wow, she is so sweet!" It is something you just can't help but notice, especially in this day and age when there are so many NOT SWEET people roaming around!


My Mom loves Kaishon. She loves him like he is her very own. She delights in his smiles and his accomplishments. And he loves her so. Together, they are quite a team! I love knowing they have each other in this crazy world.


My Mom loves God. She is a very good example to all of her children. She spends time every day reading the Bible and praying. I remember when she started working again, after staying home with us for many years, she used to get up at 4:30 so she would have time to read her Bible and pray. What a wonderful example. We all look up to her and honor her.


I truly don't know what I would do without her. Every time I need help with Kaishon or paperwork or cleaning, my mom is there. She helps me even when it is hard for her...like when she has to take Kaishon to basketball games and they get lost on the way to the game, AND on the way home from the game.


She is simply the sweetest, calmest, most sincere person you will ever meet. I am nothing like her, but I love her mightily. Happy Birthday Dear Sweet Mommy! God blessed me with the most amazing parents. I am so thankful each and every day for the parents God gave me. They are truly wonderful people. Magnificent, really.

Becky, You say you are nothing like your mom but I have to say that you must have inherited her sweetness. It is such a blessing to honor a godly mom!
