Sometimes the words are needed

I would just like to publicly state that I love my Mom.  She retired in 2007 and even before that she was always there for me in any way she could help.  Now that she's retired, she keeps Conor for us a lot more - saving us from having to send him to a sitter.  She takes him swimming, or to Kings Island, or just plays with him.  She also is keeping one of the bunnies that Alli brought home from school. 

We are currently moving and she has helped so much in getting everything we have needed taken care of for us.  We needed the shed moved, and she got me a number for a guy who turned out to be amazing at moving sheds through tight spots. 

She keeps Conor when we need to get something done that is better done without him.  She takes Alli to work, or picks her up when we are unable to get there.  And those early morning shifts when Alli has to be at work at 5am or 6am - she makes sure she is there on time. 

Whenever I'm feeling stressed, or down I know I can call her and she will make me feel better.  She is an amazing person, and I feel so blessed to have her as my Mom.  I truly appreciate everything she has done for me and I hope she knows that I love her more than words can possibly say.

You are lucky to have her--and it's sweet of you to show her this public appreciation.
