because I have always had a mother that believed





'Oh, Jo. 
Jo, you have so many extraordinary gifts; how can you expect to lead an ordinary life?

 You're ready to go out and - and find a good use for your talent. Tho' I don't know what I shall do without my Jo. 

Go, and embrace your liberty. And see what wonderful things come of it.'

Marmee to Jo in Little Women


Her favorite book is Little Women.
She is a reader.
A hugger.
A believer.
She believes in Jesus, in her children, in hope.
She cries at Hallmark movies.
And people's hard times.
She gives
unselfishly
to everyone she comes into contact with.
She is, by far, the best human being on the planet.
I love her with everything I am.

Your mother's legacy continues in the kind of person you are, and the way you raise your children. When people see you, they see your mom. What a terrific tribute to the best mother in the world.

A beautiful tribute to a beautiful woman...from another beautiful woman. The picture is wonderful...I love that they are in front of a door. "Here is the world, little one! Look what awaits you!" Lovely.
P.S. I cry at Hallmark movies, too. Even just the commercials for the movies.
