Thank you for choosing to be open to life...which resulted in us six kids! ;) You are such a beautiful person, Mom. You are so meek and humble that no one would ever guess how much knowledge you really posses. You are so solid and knowledgeable in your faith, and in any subject that pertains to raising children, from medicine to computers. In addition, you are so sensitive to others feelings. You make each person feel like what they have to say is important no matter how small it is. Your diligence and perseverance in homeschooling us and being a stay at home mother is so admirable and courageous. You are my nearest and dearest friend, and I'm blessed that God made you my mother. I love you so much, Mom.
Note: For those of you who don't know, my mom went through seven years of infertility before she was able to have her first child: me! My parents thought they would never have any children of their very own, so motherhood is a very big blessing to my mom. :)
