mom (what else can i say)

this post is dedicated to my mom. terry challenged me to think of things my mom taught me through the years and i realized that many of my attributes and values came from my parents' influence. i would share them but there are many, and some are too personal. but the funny one i remember is, my mom taught me not to ask obvious questions. whenever we asked my mom what she was doing, she would say "doing the laundry" and leave it at that even is she was really cooking or something like that. it would make us so mad that eventually we would figure out what she was doing before we asked. i realized how silly it was to ask someone what they are doing if i can clearly see what they are doing. just as a side note, the only time i would ask my mom what she was doing was when she actually was doing the laundry, then she didn't have an answer, we thought we were so smart!


the picture is the best picture of me and my mom together, and i love you mom!

proverbs 31.28-29 "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her; 'Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.'" i pray that you rise up and bless your mom on this mother's day!
