My daughter, Abby, placed 3rd place in our school district writing competition, What My Mother Means to Me, and she was a finalist at the state level. I was overwhelmed with love and appreciation when my husband read it to me on Mother’s Day, with Abby cuddling by my side. I am truly thankful and honored to be the mother of my 3 children.

There are so many things that I could say about my mom, like how beautiful she is and how much fun she is to be around. Sadly I can only tell you three reasons why my mom is so wonderful.

First, she cares about us and always supports us too. I love it when my mom comes and tucks me in, and prays for me when I have a soccer game the next day or if I have a test in school. She is always there to help me.

My Mom also is a spectacular cook. I love it when we get to spend time together making cookies or our homemade strawberry jam.

Finally, she is beautiful inside and out. What makes her beautiful is that she trusts in God, has a wonderful personality and has beautiful eyes and a bright white smile.

Those are my reasons why I love my mom. She means the world to me and I wouldn’t trade her for anything.
