Dear mom,
I wanted to tell you how much I love you. I took some time today to reflect upon things you have done for me that I greatly appreciate.

Whenever we were having tacos for dinner, you would always ask me to grate the cheese. I would always say “I give it an A”. You would always laugh at my stupid joke. Thanks.

My favorite part of our family vacations to Galveston was swimming in the ocean with you and dad. I was little and the ocean was so big. We would all swim out to the deep part where my feet could not touch the ground. You would hold me up next to you so that I would not be afraid. I always felt safe.

When I was a freshman in high school, I wanted to try out for cheerleader. I needed a new outfit to impress the crowd at tryouts. We were in between paychecks, so you borrowed money from a friend and bought me the outfit of my choice. Thank you for not being to proud to do so.

I remember trying to get you to call my employer and tell them that I was sick. You would not do it and explained to me that that was my responsibility. At the time, I was angry about that. Now, I understand.

Speaking of being sick, you were the best nurse. You would make the couch into a bed for me so that I could watch tv when I was sick. The cool rag you would place on my forehead when my fever was high made me feel so much better.

Thank you for helping me learn my solo “lullaby Jesus” for the 6th grade school play. You were the best teacher one could have.

I could go on and on. I hope you know that I love you more than baked beans. I miss you, and I will come see you soon.
Happy mothers day!

What a wonderful Mothers Day gift. I am so glad you have such good memories of your childhood. You were a pretty easy child to mother. You are a sweetie and I love and miss you also.
I look forward to the day I can wish you a Happy Mothers Day .

Nancy.... Sarah..... QUIT IT. You're making me cry. But while we're at it - - -

Nancy, Happy God-Mother's Day! It might be about 20 years late, but just in case I didn't say it at the time, thank you (and Joe) for my little first communion purse, prayer book and rosary. I still have them. The clasp is broken and the little white plastic rose on the front of the purse is kinda messed up, but the memories are all intact. :) Rachel
