Wonder Mom

I tried to find an appropriate Hallmark, but they don't have a card that is quite right for my mom. See, my mother is "Wonder Mom", she has super skills. My mom doubles coupons, dishes advice, and whizzes around in her 1980's Camry proudly displaying a tissue box in the back window.

When I was little she made my clothes and soothed my tears when only ugly shoes would fit me. She drove me to every Indian Maiden, Brownie, 4-H, Soccer, and school event without complaint. Mom made Kool aid, (the kind with sugar) and pancakes with peanut butter. On rainy days it was bean soup and grilled cheese. She organized great birthday parties and cared for every ill or orphan animal on our family farm.

My mom let it slide when I wrecked her car during drivers ed and when I started my catering business,  she sewed aprons to wear. Mom seems to have forgiven me for eloping, (maybe) and she sat beside me at the hospital when my son spent his first Christmas in the emergency room.

Growing up she always made me feel trusted, special and loved. My mom forgives me even when I forget to call, when I forget to say "thank you" and is ready at a moments notice to handle any Grandma duty. Not much of a card I know but, "Happy Mothers Day, I love you, Wonder Mom!"

Priceless. This was better than any Hallmark card.

Happy Mother's Day to you.
