I Love My Mother Because.... by Laura Lewis



I love my mom because she would always tickle my face or scratch my back.

She made my Halloween costume every year,
and helped Santa fill my stocking.

She showed me how to bake,
and has taught me the importance of sharing with others.

She was always patient with me,
and allowed me to learn from my mistakes.

She let me play "dress up" with her wedding dress,
and taught me people are more valuable than things.

I love my mom because she gave me life....and taught me how to live & be happy!

I don't know when, maybe 6 months ago, on one of those "my kids are trying to ruin my life and I am a horrible mother" posts I am prone to writing, Laura left me a comment that was just what I needed to hear. I don't even remember what she said, but I remember feeling like somebody "got" me and everything was okay. From that comment, I got to her blog and have been uplifted and entertained ever since. She's a mother of 4 very lucky kids indeed who come up with the best "goofy" faces in photographs that I have ever seen. Thanks Laura, your mom must be terrific to turn out a kid like you. Happy Mothers Day!

I don't know how I came across your blog but I am also doing a tribute to motherhood. I may have found you that way. But I love your tribute. I love this time of year and the love that we all experience for our mothers. Thanks!
You have a great blog!!!

It's funny but when I think about my mom I think of all the costume she made for me. They were so well made that many of them are still in her costume box and they are 40-50 years old.
