    1. I love my mom teaching me how to cook and bake bread, I don't like cooking, but I do a pretty good job because my family isn't starving. But I remember one day she was showing how to kneed bread and I didn't feel like it. I told her "why do I have to learn how to do this, I'll only be living right around the corner from you when I get older." Boy was I wrong.

    2. Cooking, she was always in the kitchen cooking. I also remember that when I was young, she would talk on the phone with her mother (my grandmother) everyday. Their conversation would only last about 5 minutes, but they would talk every single day.

    3. My mom would get so tickled when she did something new. She called me one day and was so excited that she paid a bill online. To know my mom is to know that is big. My mom didn't get on the computer, she didn't text and she barely drove. I can remember like it was yesterday, she was so tickled with herself.

    4. My best memory of my mom would be how much she loves to shop. She doesn't even need an excuse and tells me how to dress and whats in style all the time :-). It's the cutest thing to hear your mom tell you what's in style and what's not.

    5. My mom is silly and my mom loves us ( seems like too much at times) Ha just kidding....she can make me feel golden when down and out.....My favorite memory...welll she hates surprises...and my dad well he threw her a big party for her 30th...I remember her not wanting to go into the party ( at our own home mind you). Silly mom....also the day she found out she was expecting my surprise baby sister....I remember hearing her while I was in the waiting room almost shout , oh my goodness or something of that nature.....My mom is just so kind loving and fun. She loves to be spontaneous and make us feel like we are the best gifts ever!!! She is the most amazing grandmother and puts in a lot of effort being far away to make sure to be a part of the kids lives....by being silly on the phone, making as many memories by actively playing with them when she is around them. I find myself doing some of the same silly things to my children....singing :Rise and Shine really loud in the morning in a loud quirky tone and clapping to get them out of bed. My mom is awesome because she loves with all of her heart!!!

    1. My mom always taught me that even if I lived in a shack, that better be the best looking shack on the block.

    2. Always do the right thing, all the time, even when no one is looking.

    3. My mom use to say no one likes a lair or a theif. Something that I can pass on to my daughter that my mom taught me is that men are nice to have around but always be able to take care of yourself.

    4. There's so much she's taught me but the one she always reminds me off and the one I will never forgot is to pray and put God first. Everyone will disappoint you but God He never will.

    5. To put God first! That she raised us to pray and took us to church, that was the best lesson!

    1. Meekness! This has brought me through a lot of tough situations, sometimes having patience is very hard.

    2. The Giving spirit. My mother gave until it hurt. She would give anything to anyone.

    3. I wish I inherited my mom's energy! She would spend hours everyday cleaning even though it was just her, my dad and 2 dogs. After all day cleaning she would cook my dad dinner then clean some more. You could eat off the floor! She was an amazing woman!

    4. The one thing I wish I inherited is my mom's persistence. She never gives up until she gets what she wants and usually do get what she wants. I'm persistent but not as much as she can be. It's could sometimes be a good and a bad thing cause people can take it as nagging. But I would rather be persistent and not give in that be the person that takes what you get and not fight for what you deserve.

  4. She is a perfectionist! I am not!! When she does something it is always better than she planned, I once took a statistics class with her in college. She was the star student, asked all the good questions, was the only one to get an A on the tests while we all bombed....so I admire that in her....I am not a perfectionist at all. I am a procrastinator...and often do not follow through on things that I should...( age is helping me with this as well as being self aware of this fault!)
