I Love My Mom Because.... by Kati Baxter

I love my mom because of her courage and strength, her unconditional love and service to all she knew.  I love her because she taught me to notice the sunset, wildflowers or the smell of the breeze.  I love her for her laughter, that I hear within my own, her smile, her voice, her twinkling eyes, her calmness and her excitement.  I love her because she served me my whole life till I was able to return the favor for the last few months of her life.  I love her for her legacy- a legacy of love, a legacy of kindness, a legacy of testimony, a legacy of building, a legacy of hope.

Kati is my neighborhood friend who is training to run a marathon, bakes bread, raises 3 sons, laughs really hard, loves the Lord, and makes me want to be a better person. Thanks, Kati for sharing your mom with us!

HA HA Les! Yes, Brad and I HAVE kissed :) Mucho, if you want to know the juicy details! Can I just openly say this- the one part of that incredible segment you did on our family that bugs me (just a little bit) is when my mom says that Brad has never kissed a girl--- Let me add that he has never kissed A BOY either. Ahhhh now I've said it :)

And Les, just a tip- don't bet your amazing, talented, joyful spreading career on someone as ordinary as me. You have too much to show the world! I mean- what if somebody really took you up on that?? Really, my mom, that is a given- but me, ugh. That is a lot of presure :)

Loved that aliteration!
