Yesterday was the second anniversary of my mommy's 23rd birthday!
I love my mother very much. She has taught me everything I need to know about being a decent human being (like chewing with my mouth closed and being nice to people).
I envy her ability to quilt. It is absolutely magical the way she can see the colors of the fabric and how they go together. And that's only the beginning. It's a whole new level once she actually sews them together. My mother makes art and she does it well.
My mother is also very courageous and strong. She has had to deal with things from heartache to stupid people and she does it with class and style.
She chews ice in the morning while she reads her quilting blogs. It's annoying as heck but I love her for it because it means she's there, being my mommy just how I like her.
I remember the first time I heard my Mother bear her testimony in sacrament meeting. I was so proud and I felt so blessed to have her as my mommy. She did everything she could to raise me in the gospel. She made sure we knew that church was important.
Most of all I love my mom's sense of humor. She always has something funny to say. I think my favorite of all time was "On Sundays at church when the crazy people start to talk, it's the worst! The spirit gets to leave but everyone else is stuck there!" I also enjoy that she has embraced the "Deb-Tina" nickname that her children have dubbed her. She gets funnier every day.
I love my mommy and am very grateful for everything she does for me and my family. She is my favorite support and constant friend. Happy birthday Deb-Tina!!!!
